On Tuesday 5 July we celebrated our annual awards in an uplifting virtual event. This year, we relaunched our awards with a new name: Pride of DPT and revised the award categories to really capture the essence of what the awards mean and why it's so important for us to take the time to celebrate the amazing work done by our colleagues.

Despite the challenges we faced over the course of the pandemic, the dedication and passion of our staff has been evident in the nominations we received and we were truly proud to celebrate their work and achievements during the ceremony. 

Our Chairman Andy Willis, opened the event and welcomed all those waiting nervously in the wings. Our Chief Executive, Melanie Walker, expertly navigated her duties as Master of Ceremonies, announcing each award sponsor and inviting them to present their awards.
