Community Recognition Awards 2021

PLEASE NOTE: Nominations are now Closed for our Community Recognition Awards.

DLDC hosted a Community Recognition Awards ceremony to acknowledge and reward the work of the community and voluntary sector.

The Community & Voluntary sector really came to the fore throughout the COVID 19 Pandemic and we wanted to take the time to recognise and reward their valiant efforts. The ‘Community Recognition Awards’ will took place in the Finn Valley Centre, Stranorlar at 7pm on Thursday 4th November where finalists enjoyed a meal, followed by the presentation of awards, music & dancing.

We asked members of the public to join us in acknowledging and recognising this great work and nominate the groups for a recognition award.
