Peak Awards 2020

About the Awards

2020 has already been one of the most challenging years we have faced; communities have come together more closely than ever, outstanding bravery and kindness has been seen every day.

Throughout difficult times exceptional people shine. Ordinary people doing extraordinary things. Mums, Dads, carers, teachers, children, neighbours, colleagues and friends.

Peak FM is proud to once again recognise the amazing achievements of people from across our area; those who have made a difference to our community, shown courage and helped make the lives of others that little bit better.

In the interests of safety and maintaining social distance the Peak FM Awards will, this year, be held as a virtual ceremony with video and audio content of our outstanding award recipients broadcast on-air or published online. Instead of a physical stage, we will shine the spotlight using the power of radio and digital reach, giving remarkable people the acknowledgement they deserve.

Thank you to our wonderful local business partners who have kindly agreed to help bring this campaign to air with their support.

We all know someone that deserves to be recognised and this is your opportunity to tell us their story and help to get them the recognition that they deserve.

Award recipients will be selected from Peak FM listener nominations and local news stories and will be selected by a Peak FM judging panel.

The Peak FM Awards will be held across the day on Friday 5th June through Peak FM’s digital platforms and via our daytime shows.

We can’t wait to say thank you and well done to some amazing people.

Big thanks to everyone who nominated someone they know for a Peak FM Award this year.

Carer of the Year
Proudly sponsored by United Response

The Carer of the Year award recognises an individual who has given outstanding care, going above and beyond to help those they’re caring for to retain dignity, independence and a good quality of life – putting their wellbeing at the heart of everything they do. In the current climate, carers have played a vital role in keeping the country functioning and helping those in need - let’s show them our appreciation!

Family of the Year

We are looking for North Derbyshire’s Family of the Year. Do you know an outstanding family that needs to be recognised?

Child or Teenager of Courage
Proudly sponsored by The Bathroom Shop

Do you know a child or teenager in North Derbyshire that has shown outstanding courage? They may have battled against the odds themselves or they may have done something really brave to help someone else. Let us know if they deserve to be recognised with a Peak Award for 2020.

NHS Hero
Proudly sponsored by Direct Cars

Our NHS workers play a pivotal role at the best of times and during this health crisis our NHS workers in North Derbyshire and South Sheffield have been there for us all. Whether they are doctors, pharmacists and nurses on the frontline, hard-working cleaners, much needed clerical staff, caring porters or amazing volunteers, without the NHS staff there wouldn’t be an NHS. We are looking for a true local NHS Hero, someone that you feel should be recognised for the help they have given and the work they have been doing.

Act of Kindness
Proudly sponsored by Chesterfield Borough Council

In a world where bad news can dominate the headlines it can be worth remembering the capacity for love and generosity that there is across North Derbyshire.
