What are the Sports and Health Awards?
The annual NWLLSA Sport and Health Awards is a glamorous evening ceremony attended each year by over 500 local people. It is held to recognise and celebrate the outstanding contributions made by local people of all ages to sport, physical activity and health across North West Leicestershire.
The evening's procedures are hosted by the brilliant Ian Stringer, from Radio Leicester, and sees finalists from 15 award categories, plus schools who have achieved various levels of School Games Status, come up on stage to receive trophies and certificates in recognition of their fantastic achievements. Award winners are also then automatically nominated into the prestigious Leicester Mercury Sports Awards.
On the night an inspiring speech is also given by a local talented athlete, and dazzling entertainment from a local group lights up the stage at the half way interval. Refreshments are available all evening.
Why do we have the Sport and Health Awards?
Our mission, at the council, is to measurably improve the health and wellbeing of everyone in NWL, and to achieve this we want to support everyone to be physically active. The sport and health awards is a platform to share and celebrate the achievements and contributions local people are making to sport, physical activity and health right now, but also a means through which to inspire and empower others to join in.
When and where are the Sport and Health Awards?
This year's awards will be held at the Everyone Active Hermitage Leisure Centre, Whitwick on Thursday 28th November. Doors will open at 6pm, with the awards ceremony starting at 6.30pm, running until 8.30pm.
What is the theme of the Sport and Health Awards 2019?
The theme this year is inclusivity and our take home message will be that 'Activity is for everyone!'
We firmly believe that everyone, regardless of age, gender, ability or disability, with the right opportunity and support, can be regularly physically active and reap the benefits...all it takes is a commitment.
We therefore must provide opportunities for all of our community, and empower and inspire everyone to believe that activity is for them.
That is why this year we ask that everybody who agrees with this message joins us in sharing it, and celebrating our successes toegther. Please use #ProudNWL #Activity4All to join in the conversation and spread the message on social media.
