Lifetime Achievement Award
For the Lifetime Achievement Award we have changed the process this year, in line with many other awards ceremonies, and only have one winner of this category, with no other nominations being shortlisted. The winner will be announced at the awards evening on 26 March.


What’s changed for 2019/20?

Changes to the Lifetime Achievement Award as detailed above. 

This year we introduced an Environmental Impact Award. Making the Trust as sustainable as possible is a high priority for the organisation and we want to celebrate what individuals and teams are doing to make a difference to this agenda. The Trust is committed to the sustainability agenda and improving and sustaining our environment for today’s generations and those yet to come. We want to celebrate individuals and teams who are going above and beyond to have a positive impact.

We also simplified the nominations forms this year to make them easier for you to fill out. 

Winners will be announced on 26 March 2020 at our awards ceremony at the East Midlands Conference Centre.
