Derbyshire Beacon of Hope Awards
We met the High Sherriff of Derbyshire – Tony Walker – at our most recent Coffee Morning on Zoom, and he was pleased to tell us all about the Beacon of Hope Awards.
These awards look to identify, and to express thanks to those groups or individuals who have worked tirelessly to keep communities safe, and businesses moving during the global COVID-19 crisis.
While the pandemic is still ongoing, Derby City Council, Derbyshire 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.
If you feel you know of a group or an individual that has gone above and beyond to help others during the pandemic, then the organisations and individuals named above, would very much like to know about it.
To nominate a group or indiviual please vist https://www.derby.gov.uk/council-and-democracy/councillors-democracy-elections/mayor-of-derby/derbyshire-beacon-of-hope-awards/ where you can nominate someone online.
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.
