We Won!

On the 28th October Junction Arts staff attended the Voluntary Sector Awards evening, at the Pomegranate Theatre, Chesterfield. The Theme for the evening was ‘Chicago’, so we dressed up in our sequins, trilby hat and braces! It was a fantastic turnout and was lovely to see some of our friends too.

We were very proud to have two projects short listed for the Most Innovative Project; ‘Lighting the Way’ and ‘Home Comforts’.
As you can imagine we were thrilled that ‘Lighting the Way’, our 2020 replacement of Bolsover Lantern Parade won!  To have the project and our community’s hard work and dedication to this well-loved town tradition recognised made us feel really proud.

The evening really did highlight all the brilliant work that the Voluntary sector do for local communities. There were so many wonderful projects that have done and continue to do brilliant and important work. It was a really lovely event enjoyed by all. Thank you to the Volunteer Centre Chesterfield and North East Derbyshire for a wonderful time!
