There are 6 Award Categories:

Long Service Award

Sponsored by Pro-Medical 2002 Ltd

This award is to recognise a volunteer who has given their time and energy over a number of years, and who has made a big difference to their organisation or community.

Unsung Hero

Sponsored by Clive's Candles

Do you have a volunteer who goes above or beyond for their community, or who makes a special contribution but never seems to get the recognition they deserve?  If so, this is the category to nominate them for!

Young Volunteer of the Year

Sponsored by David Wain Insurance

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.

Volunteer Team of the Year

Sponsored by Mercia Marina

Can’t single out an individual?  If you have a great volunteer team that you think stands out for its commitment and hard work, that has made a real impact on the community, nominate them for this award.

Compassionate Company

Sponsored by Swadlincote and District Chamber of Trade

Do you know a local business in South Derbyshire that has made a real and positive difference to our local community? This could be by supporting a cause, or giving time and skills, or through going ‘over and above’ to make services accessible and friendly to those in need.

Local Charity or Voluntary Group

Sponsored by Timm's Solicitors

This award is to recognise the great work done by voluntary and community organisations across South Derbyshire. If you’ve made a real difference, or know an organisation that has, this is your chance to tell us about it.
