They provide insurance for a range of clients from individuals to National Governing Bodies, amateurs and professionals.

Stephen Brewster, Chief Executive Officer of the Sports Partnership, said:

"This event is our chance to honour our local sportsmen and women, coaches, volunteers, clubs and officials.

"Over the years, we've received such huge support for the awards and the partners that we have attracted share with us in wanting to recognise, reward and celebrate the positive impact that individuals and clubs are making on sport and physical activity."

"The awards offer a great opportunity for businesses and organisations to gain exposure and expand their consumer base, reaching new audiences".
