YOUTH SPORTS PERFORMANCE OF THE YEAR – Chroma Sport & Trophies
Established in 1991, Chromasport has developed and grown to be partner of choice for many customers and this has enabled Chromasport to become one of the leading suppliers of teamwear and trophies across the East Anglia region. Widely recognised for its excellent customer service and value for money, Chromasport provides a variety of products through all age groups, offering recognised brands such as Nike, Adidas, Mitre, Stanno and Macron.
We at Chromasport were delighted to be asked to be associated with the Living Sport awards and in particularly to be invited to sponsor the “Youth Sports Performance of the Year” award for 2018. We see this award as one of the most prestigious of the event as it clearly identifies and rewards the talent and future potential for the winner to grow and develop which is very similar to ourselves at Chromasport. We look forward to the awards and working with Living Sport to develop and nurture key young talent moving forward as they continue to do a fantastic job in their local communities and our partnership is going from strength to strength .

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 email@example.com
“Support Cambridgeshire is proud to sponsor The Community Volunteer of the Year Award at the forthcoming Living Sport Awards Ceremony in 2018. 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 2018/19 brings more volunteers doing great things for local people and local areas across Cambridgeshire.” Russell Rolph, Development Manager
