The Living Sport Sports Awards is our flagship event of the year, celebrating all the fantastic achievements and contribution of those involved in community sport across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. But the event would not be possible without the event sponsors, to whom we are incredibly grateful for their support. Please find below some information about this years sponsors.
Support Cambridgeshire brings together three partner organisations who will work together to support community groups and organisations across Cambridgeshire.
Hunts Forum of Voluntary Organisations will lead the partnership, supported by Cambridge Council for Voluntary Services and Cambridgeshire ACRE.
Each of the partner organisations will serve as expert sources of advice and guidance. Support Cambridgeshire will deliver better outcomes for local organisations across the county, with the expectation of a stronger and more vibrant voluntary and community sector.
Support Cambridgeshire will harness the skills and expertise contained within the partnership, but will also use other Development partners as and when required.
Support Cambridgeshire can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
“Support Cambridgeshire is proud to sponsor The Community Volunteer of the Year Award at the forthcoming Living Sport Awards Ceremony in 2017. It is vital that people, who often do great things in their local area, receive some small recognition for helping to build and develop communities. Without such people, communities would be less connected and less cohesive. Let’s hope that 2017/18 brings more volunteers doing great things for local people and local areas across Cambridgeshire.”

WORKPLACE OF THE YEAR – Anglian Water
A secure supply of water underpins everything in our region, driving growth and vitality in our neighbourhoods and making this a fantastic place to live, work and play. It’s no wonder long term access to secure water supplies and reliable, effective water recycling systems are two of the most pressing global environmental and economic challenges.
Facing a future that promises more neighbours but fewer raindrops, our response has been to launch Love Every Drop – a campaign to put water at the heart of a new way of living.
Love Every Drop goes far beyond the supply of clean water, and its treatment before we return it to the environment. We’re embedding ourselves in the communities we serve, working with customers, business leaders, young and old to raise awareness about how essential water it to life, people, the environment and the economy. Together we can make all the difference – and you can take part at a tap near you.
Why are we supporting the Living Sport Awards?
“We’re proud to support the Living Sport Awards as they’re a great opportunity for us to show people how water powers communities. Just think of your cup of tea this morning, or the clean socks you pulled on before breakfast. That wouldn’t have happened without water. Anyone with exercise on their mind will be the first to confess their achievements would not be possible without water.
“We’ve specifically chosen to support the Workplace of the Year Award because we recognise the role healthy staff play in a successful businesses. At Anglian Water, we place a huge emphasis on wellbeing, both mental and physical. We’re delighted to recognise the success of others who are similarly ambitious in the hope that this inspires even more business to strive for similar success.”
