Cambridgeshire sporting heroes set to be recognised
Nominations are open for the annual Living Sport Sports Awards.
There are 12 categories across a broad range of criteria seeking to recognise and celebrate the achievements of sport in Cambridgeshire.
Sportsmen, women and teams will be honoured, as will coaches and volunteers for the efforts in developing their respective sports, while the spotlight will also be put on organisations and clubs who use sport and physical activity to have a positive impact on people’s lives.
The categories include sports performance of the year, community and young community volunteer of the year, coach of the year and school of the year, the Jonnie Peacock Award and Matthew Warn Power of Sport prize.
There is a new Impact Award, and several candidates will be recognised in the services to sport, volunteering and power of sport categories, rather than just the top three.
Simon Fairhall, chief executive of Living Sport, said: “The contribution that people make to the development of their organisation and project and the positive impact that participating in sport and physical activity can have on people’s lives and communities is really quite outstanding.
“We want to better recognise these efforts and not limit ourselves to a traditional top three only.
“These particular categories link more closely with our work to improve health by supporting people to get active.”
The nominations process closes on September 29, with the award ceremony to be hosted at Burgess Hall in St Ives on Thursday, November 22.
To make a nomination visit livingsport.co.uk for the online form.
