It was a pleasure to welcome nearly 100 guests to the Alverton Hotel to celebrate the fantastic achievements of our sportsmen and women alongside great food and company at this year’s Sports Dinner.
The evening’s guest speakers were former England cricketer Jack Richards and Linda Mitchell-Norfolk, physiotherapist at 14 major games, including the Olympics in Atlanta, Sydney and Salt Lake City.
Mr Dan Sanderson, Director of Sport, commented: “I would like to thank Jack and Linda for their time and entertaining insights into the sporting world, and for showing our pupils that there are many roads to sporting success.”
Before the awards were given out, Mr Sanderson took the opportunity to speak about the many and varied benefits that sport can have on relationships, here are just a few of them:
During the evening Mr Sanderson announced this year’s sports ambassador and sports personality awards before reiterating the importance of sport; not for the winning but for the life lessons it teaches and for the friendships it forms.
