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 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.

Award categories for 2020

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 the Orangery at St Elphins

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 the Whitworth Centre

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

HEALTH AND CARE HERO sponsored by Sticky Fig

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. Many people have stepped up to support those who have been shielding during this difficult time.

VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR sponsored by Peak UK

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? Or someone who gives so much of their time to fund raising for others? Please enter them in this category if they provide an invaluable, unpaid service to the community

TEACHER OR COACH OF THE YEAR sponsored by Daisy Chain

Do you know an extra special teacher or coach? Let the judges know about their commitment, how they help over and above the day job, and the results they have achieved.

Thankyou on behalf of Darley Dale Town Council. If you have any questions, please email townclerk@darleydale.gov.uk
