Chief executive Terry Eckersley said: “As things are starting to open up again we wanted to honour and celebrate some of the people and organisations that have helped us all, particularly in the last couple of years.”
The “black tie and smart casual” event will feature a drinks reception followed by a presentation which promises “special guests and surprises.”
Organisers are also inviting nominations for deserving award winners – individuals and organisations who have done exceptional work to support their communities.
Councillor Ollie Cross, the deputy mayor of High Peak, is expected to be among those attending the ceremony and said: “It will be fantastic to see local community stalwarts, groups and charitable organizations receive well-deserved recognition for their invaluable and selfless contributions to local communities across Derbyshire. It’s going to be a wonderful celebration.”
