South Derbyshire Community Awards 2018

The South Derbyshire Community Awards are back!

After a great success last year, the Awards are promising to be another great celebration of the people and organisations who do so much for South Derbyshire.

The South Derbyshire Community Awards are your chance to say ‘thank-you’ to those who give so much to benefit our local community. If there is a person, team or organisation you think stands out, make sure they get the recognition they deserve by nominating them for an Award.

The closing date for nominations is midnight on Wednesday 31 October. Winners will be announced at the Awards Ceremony on Thursday 22 November.

The South Derbyshire Community Awards are organised by South Derbyshire CVS and Swadlincote & District Chamber of Trade with sponsorship from Toyota Motor Manufacturing (UK) Ltd and the 7 individual award category sponsors listed below.

There are seven award categories:

  • Long Service Award -sponsored by East Midlands Airport

This award is to recognise an individual who has volunteered their time and energy over a number of years, making a real difference to the organisation or cause they support.

  • Unsung Hero –sponsored by Clive's Candles

Do you know a special person who goes above or beyond for their community? Who quietly gives a lot but never gets the recognition they deserve? This is the category to nominate them for!

  • Young Volunteer of the Year – Sponsored by Smith Partnership

This award is to recognise a young person under the age of 25 who has shown enthusiasm and commitment to an organisation or cause, and made a real difference.

  • Team of the Year – Sponsored by Mercia Marina

Can't single out an individual? This award is for a team of people who stand out for their commitment and hard work, who make a difference to their community or cause.

  • Community Minded Company – Sponsored by South Derbyshire Chamber of Trade

Do you know a local business in South Derbyshire that makes a difference to the community they work in? Maybe by fundraising for a good cause, or giving time and skills, or going the extra mile to make their services accessible and friendly to those in need.

  • Local Charity or Voluntary Group of the Year – Sponsored by Timms Solicitors

This award is to recognise a local charity or community group doing great work in South Derbyshire. If you know an organisation that deserves a special thank you for their work this year, this is your chance to tell us about it.

  • Love Where You Live or Work – sponsored by South Derbyshire District Council

Do you know a person, group, project or organisation that has done something to make a difference to the local environment or community, creating a safe place for everyone to enjoy? This could be anything from reducing litter, recycling waste, or encouraging others to take pride in South Derbyshire.
