Awards will hand youth sport a big char­ity boost

Warwickshire Telegraph - - COVENTRY SPORTS AWARDS 2018 -

OF­FER­ING a fan­tas­tic way to cel­e­brate the re­gion’s sport­ing com­mu­nity, the Coven­try and War­wick­shire Sports Awards 2018 are set to be held at the city’s Ri­coh Arena on Novem­ber 29 in what prom­ises to be a night of cel­e­bra­tion.

As well as an evening of award pre­sen­ta­tions, the cer­e­mony will also see funds raised for a wor­thy cause. The cho­sen char­ity at this year’s event is the Lord’s Tav­ern­ers, an or­gan­i­sa­tion with the goal of en­hanc­ing the lives of dis­ad­van­taged and dis­abled young peo­ple through sport and recre­ational ac­tiv­ity.

Im­pact­ing the lives of many young peo­ple, through its work the Lord’s Tav­ern­ers brings sport to young peo­ple by of­fer­ing prac­ti­cal so­lu­tions such as adapted minibuses, cre­at­ing out­door play spa­ces and run­ning com­mu­nity pro­grammes.

Funds will be raised on the night through a mix of fun, in­ter­ac­tive fundrais­ing ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing standup bingo and a silent auc­tion which is sure to in­clude many sought-af­ter items such as sport­ing mem­o­ra­bilia.

Held at the Ri­coh Arena, home to Wasps Rugby Club and where Coven­try City FC play, the venue pro­vides the per­fect back­drop to the evening. Thir­teen awards will be pre­sented on the night, in­clud­ing the Pro­fes­sional Young Sportsper­son of the Year Award which is spon­sored by event hosts, the Ri­coh Arena. Other awards in­clude:

Hosted by Olympian Gail Emms MBE and sports broad­caster, Gary New­bon, the sparkling evening event sees sport­ing he­roes from across the re­gion, in­clud­ing some fa­mous faces from the world of sport, come to­gether for a fab­u­lous evening of recog­ni­tion of the re­gion’s out­stand­ing grass­roots and pro­fes­sional sport­ing ac­tiv­ity.
