Ceremony Ceremony

The 2019 Derby Telegraph Sports Awards will culminate in a lavish awards ceremony on 6th November, at The Roundhouse, Derby College. Guests will be welcomed to the evening with a Champagne reception before enjoying a fabulous three course gourmet meal. Following this, finalists are invited to join the evening to watch the ceremony, where the winner of each category will be announced. A host of sporting celebrities will attend the evening and will present each award alongside the category sponsor.

The night will raise money for East Midlands charity, Rainbows Children’s Hospice which opened its doors in 1994. At Rainbows, they are dedicated to meeting the needs of the children and young people from the region who come to the hospice with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions. Their work extends throughout the child’s or young person’s life and beyond into bereavement support as required. Each year they need to raise £6m to keep the fourteen-bed hospice operational. This money is donated by generous individuals and businesses from across the East Midlands who have taken Rainbows into their hearts.

Through a small charity game and silent auction which will take place throughout the evening, we plan to raise much needed funds for this truly worthwhile cause.

The hosts for the evening are team GB badminton star, Gail Emms MBE, and Sky Sports presenter, Gary Newbon MBE who will both be on hand to make sure the evening runs smoothly. The room will also be full of current and former sporting celebrities to add an extra sparkle to the evening.
