Sports Awards 2013
FINALIST COMMUNITY PROJECT OF THE YEAR
On November 14th Amber Active attended the Herefordshire and Worcestershire 12th Annual Sports Awards which celebrated local sporting talent and achievement.
The prestigious event was held at Sixways Stadium, Worcester Rugby Club and excellently hosted by Howard Bentham, radio presenter of Hereford and Worcester's Breakfast Show.
We were recognised as a finalist in the Community Project of the Year Category and were proud to be sitting amongst the 250 guests which included atheletes, coaches, sponsors and local dignitaries as well as sports development professionals and volunteers all of whom, like ourselves, work hard to make sport happen.
The Guest Speaker was Zac Purchase MBE, Olympic Gold and Silver Medallist, who recounted events leading up to his and his rowing partner, Mark's, rowing success at London 2012 where they won the support of the nation by winning an Olympic silver medal to add to their gold from Beijing.
The event was inspiring and congratulations must go to Gary Ives and his team at Amber Active who are proactively committed to ensuring that everybody has an equal opportunity to take part in varied and exciting sport activities.
