Nominate your local sporting heroes for the Living Sport Sports Awards 2017
The nomination process for Living Sport Sports Awards open on 30th August and closes on Friday 30th September.
The awards aim to recognise and celebrate the achievements of talented sportsmen & women, coaches, volunteers, organisations and clubs from all across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.
Individuals and organisations can now be nominated by the general public for one or more of the 14 categories which include Sports Performer of the Year, Community Volunteer of the Year and Workplace of the Year. With such an active and successful year for sport at community, national and international level, Living Sport is expecting to receive a high volume of quality nominations.
The Living Sport Sports Awards ceremony will take place on Thursday 23rd November 2017 at the iconic venue of the Burgess Hall, St Ives. Shortlisted nominees in each of the categories will receive 2 free tickets to the Awards ceremony.
Previous winners of the prestigious awards include Peterborough Police Boxing Club as Community Club of the Year (Amateur) as well as one of their young stars Artur Tomasevic as Young Sports Performer and Peterborough Phantoms Sledge Hockey team for Team of the Year. Sports Performer of the year was won by England Hockey player Hannah MacLeod and Disabled Sports Person was Jonnie Peacock, both Rio 2016 stars. Jonnie Peacock also has his very own award which recognises someone who has gone above and beyond to make a difference while overcoming personal adversity.
There are also awards for Young Community Volunteer, Community Volunteer and Services to Sport to recognize that great work volunteers do across the county. We also recognise Primary School and Secondary School of the year and Workplace of the Year.
