Now in its fourth year, the Diverse Cumbria Awards are growing every year and this year the team want to make the evening for everyone and are encouraging not only professionals to attend, but to invite and bring along the people they are working with too. They are seeking a night where everyone feels safe, supported and celebrated. A night to bring together services users and professionals to cheer on those who have been shortlisted and wait in anticipation for the winners to be announced.
The team behind the Awards are still seeking nominations and are asking people if they know someone deserving of recognition for their work in equality, diversity and inclusion in Cumbria. Perhaps an organisation or an individual whose work goes above and beyond the call of duty in tackling and eliminating discrimination? Nominations are free and can be done via the Diverse Cumbria website. But don’t hesitate, the deadline is 10pm on the 15th March.
Tickets go on sale at 6pm on Friday 22nd February and guests will be greeted with a free welcome drink, provided by the Halston Hotel. As they step onto the red carpet to enter the incredible Mail Exchange room, photo opportunities will be taking place. Guests will then have a chance to network and find their seats before the welcome speeches commence. They will then enjoy a delicious 2 course meal before the Awards Ceremony commences. The night will contain a few special added surprises this year too, so best buy your tickets quick to avoid disappointment.
The Awards are being sponsored by some big names this year including Sellafield, ITV News, jointly by the NHS Trusts in Cumbria and Cumbria’s Police and Crime Commissioner. There are still sponsors opportunities available and can be found on the Diverse Cumbria Website.
