Darley Dale Community Awards 2019
Saturday Oct 26 @ 7:00 pm - 11:30 pmFree – £8.50
We all know Darley Dale is a great place to live. We also know that our community has many special people. Did you know that the Whitworth Centre alone has some 50 clubs and charities that use the Centre regularly? Helping Darley Dale people learn new things, meet other people, become more active or simply enjoy the beautiful building and Centre.
Those people who have given up their personal time, to help make the lives of others better, are special people. We all know someone like this but equally we know that these people often don't get the recognition they should.
The new Darley Dale Town Council Awards, have been created for two reasons. To thank those people who are already making a difference to others and secondly, to encourage more people to get involved.
If you know a deserving person, community project or team, please take the time to nominate them. There are 7 Awards to choose from, which are shown below.
Simply visit the Town Council website by clicking the following link and complete the form or print it off, fill it in and deliver it to the office in The Whitworth Centre. https://www.darleydale.gov.uk/community-awards.html
Your nomination needs to be in by the 30th September and the Awards will be presented at a Dinner at the Whitworth on the 26th October 2019
YOUNG HERO sponsored by Ashton and Coleman
Judges will seek to recognise any young person under 18 who has overcome a personal difficulty or made a stand to improve their life or the lives of others. For example young people coping with bereavement, bullying, disability or medical problems, or someone who has organised support for others who face such problems.
COMMUNITY BUSINESS OF THE YEAR sponsored by Peak UK
The judges will want to hear about commercial organisations which provide added value to the communities they serve. Do they support a local charity in some way, sponsor a football team, never fail to show up at community events? Don't forget companies that have high standards when it comes to reducing their environmental impact, or who promote the green agenda to customers and the community.
COMMUNITY PROJECT OF THE YEAR sponsored by Peak Rail
The judges are looking for a project that has triumphed in the community. Supporting local people whether on a one-to-one basis or as a group – maybe a community centre with projects that have had long-lasting impact on the community. All the better if they have managed on a shoe-string or achieved results despite facing challenges
HELPING HAND AWARD sponsored by Daisy Chain
Is your neighbour one in a million? Is the person living down the street from you a true gem? We're looking for those ordinary people we know are in every street who you simply couldn't manage without. So if someone you know is always there with a listening ear, helps with household tasks, supports your caring responsibilities or generally makes life easier and more pleasant where you live, let us know.
HEALTH AND CARE HERO sponsored by Darley Dale Deli
We want to recognise those special people whose care, attention and commitment have gone beyond the call of duty, who have shouldered this responsibility with spirit, good humour and devotion. Throughout our community are vast numbers of carers and foster parents devoting their time and love. A loving, stable home can change the life of a child whilst the invaluable work of a carer plays a vital part in helping people to have a better quality of life.
VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR sponsored by Audley St Elphins
Our winner will be someone who selflessly devotes themselves to a cause. It doesn't have to be formal volunteering, although it could be. Perhaps our volunteer champion runs a kids football team, organises neighbourhood watch, is a hospital visitor, or on the board of school governors? Please enter them in this category if they provide an invaluable, unpaid service to the community
TEACHER OF THE YEAR sponsored by Tuners Art
Do you know an extra special teacher? Let the judges know about their commitment, how they help over and above the day job, and the results they have achieved. Judges would especially like to hear from pupils for this category.
