20 Awards


In 2017 Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust turns 20!
To celebrate we’re giving 20 charity awards to exceptional groups and individuals who achieve great things for the Yorkshire Dales and surrounding areas.

20 Awards for 20 Years

Over the last twenty years YDMT has helped others to achieve a fantastic amount in this special corner of the world. What better way to celebrate our 20th Anniversary than by recognising this excellent work and supporting more beneficial projects in the future?

Our trustees have set aside up to £100,000 to be given through 20 Awards which will bring further benefits to the region, in line with YDMT’s charitable aims. The awards are open to any group, business, individual or organisation whose work helps to sustain and celebrate the unique fabric of the Yorkshire Dales and surrounding area.

There are five award categories:

  • Conservation, Heritage and Environment
  • Access and Understanding
  • Rural Enterprise and Employment
  • Sustainable Communities
  • YDMT Champion
Within each category we will aim to select at least one Platinum, Gold and Silver award winner.
