Bid to make sports awards worthy of Olympics
PEOPLE are being urged to reward their Bucks sporting heroes this Olympic year.
The unsung heroes of sport in Bucks may not make it to the Rio Olympics, but they could still be in line for glittering silverware this year.
Nominations are now open for the prestigious awards that celebrate the people who make grassroots sport happen.
The 11th annual Bucks and MK Sport Awards will be on November 18, and the public are being urged to help identify the individuals and groups to be honoured.
Director of Leap, the County Sport and Activity Partnership which coordinates the event, Mark Ormerod said: “Sport is not just about being the best on the planet – it’s about competing, doing your best, getting fit and having fun. We want to reward the coaches, the referees, the club officials and all the other dedicated heroes who work all year round purely for the love of their sport.”
Last year’s awards was attended by more than 200 people at Aylesbury’s Waterside Theatre, and special guest was Paralympic gold medal swimmer and cyclist Dame Sarah Storey DBE.
