Nominations open for County Durham Together Awards

The awards (launched by the Northern Echo in partnership with DCC) seek to recognise those who have gone above and beyond during the coronavirus pandemic.  There are many categories but the most likely of interest will be:

  • Public Service Award;
  • Unsung Hero Award;
  • Volunteer of the Year Award; and
  • Community/Voluntary Group Award.

The closing date is Sunday 11th October.  You can, if you wish, nominate your own council.  You just need to provide relevant contact details, a supporting statement and an image if you have one.  The award ceremony (virtual) will take place on 10th December.

Hope we can submit a few nominations and help highlight the work being carried out by our councils and even individual staff and volunteers.
