Derbyshire Beacon of Hope Awards
The Derbyshire Beacon of Hope Awards look to identify, and to express thanks to those groups or individuals who have worked tirelessly to keep our communities safe, and our businesses moving during the global COVID-19 crisis.
While the pandemic is still ongoing, the City Council, County Council and their Leaders, as well as the formal institutions of the High Sheriff and Lord Lieutenancy feel it is important now to recognise that many across the County have committed themselves to response and relief efforts since the beginning of the outbreak. The award will seek to highlight those in every sector and locality of the County that have played a key role.
Nominations are open to the public, and we want to hear your stories. If you feel you know of a group or an individual that has gone above and beyond to help others during the pandemic, then we'd like to know about it.
To nominate a group or individual please click the link below to complete a nomination form. You will need to include the nominees details as well as a short explanation as to why you believe they are deserving of an award. The closing date for nominations is 14 May 2021.
This award is a great opportunity for all residents of Derbyshire to show their appreciation and reflect on the hard work done by others. We will be paying visits to winners to present them with their awards and to take a moment to speak to them about what they have been doing during the crisis and the impact it has had.
