The National Diversity Awards is to be hosted this year by Brian Dowling at Manchester’s Midland Hotel on the 21st September where the winners will be announced in what is sure to be a memorable ceremony.
The awards aim to recognise and reward positive role models, entrepreneurs and community organisations from a grass roots level for all their hard work within their respective communities. The event itself is unique, as it rewards all aspects of diversity within one ceremony including age, disability, gender, race and LGBT. This has attracted endorsements from celebrities from the likes of Stephen Fry, Brian Blessed, Ade Adepitan and the stars from My Transsexual Summer along with several Paralympians such as Jody Cundy, Claire Hardy, and Danny Crates.
After generating so much momentum and interest for its first year the NDAs are sure to be a glittering success.
