Smith Partnership to Sponsor Our Annual Awards

Awards evening

Derby County Community Trust are thrilled to announce that their Annual Awards will be backed by leading law firm, Smith Partnership, as headline sponsors of the event.

The evening is a celebration of all the work which the Trust delivers across Derby and Derbyshire, recognising participants, staff and programmes which have made a tangible difference to lives and communities.

Taking place annually, the awards are back after a two year hiatus due to the ongoing pandemic.

Simon Carnall, Head of Community, said, “To have the support of Smith Partnership as headline sponsors is fantastic. 

“Our awards are truly a showcase of community work at its best. The stories of our participants and the work which our staff deliver to improve lives and communities is simply astounding, and the night of celebration is justly deserved for all those involved. 

“The evening wouldn’t be possible without generous sponsors, so we wholeheartedly extend our thanks to the team at Smith Partnership for supporting our wide range of projects, dedicated participants and hard-working staff.” 

Kevin McGrath, Managing Partner at Smith Partnership said, “Being involved in these awards is very important to us. The last 18 months have been so difficult for everyone. These awards really represent the unsung heroes who help our community.”

Derby County Community’s Trust Annual Awards will take place on 23rd September and have also been kindly supported by a range of award sponsors, including Document Network Services, Mercia Image Print, Sky Recruitment Solutions, Timms Solicitors and Bowmer and Kirkland.
