2013 Cornwall Sports Awards - The Winners!

Date: 8 Nov 2013

The 2013 Cornwall Sports Awards invited our many unsung sporting heroes to take centre stage thanking them for helping to bring the Olympic legacy to life.

The annual event, held at The Headland Hotel in Newquay on Friday 8th November, welcomed over 200 of Cornwall’s dedicated volunteer sports coaches, officials, clubs, organisations and young leaders.

They were joined by special guests Chris Opie, Cornish born British cyclist with Team UK Youth and Robbie Hampshaw, Special Olympic Gold medallist in tennis who lives in Cornwall.

Organised by the Cornwall Sports Partnership, the event is now in its eighth year of celebrating and paying tribute to the many volunteers from across the duchy who dedicate their time and efforts to supporting our strong sports community and inspiring the next generation. 

Cornwall Sports Award organiser, Natasha Howard of the Cornwall Sports Partnership, says “ We are extremely proud to organise this event which recognises and rewards the many volunteers who give their time to inspire people to get involved in sport.  We encourage them to continue their great work creating a legacy of increased participation and enjoyment of sport throughout Cornwall.  We would also like to say a big thank you to all those who took the time to nominate, without which these awards could not take place”.

"Winning the award gives us the recognition of the hard work and dedication of the team in providing opportunities for all our colleagues to take part in physical activity during and outside of working hours.  It was humbling to see all the local people who give their time to others and it inspires us to do even more in 2014".



Employee Feedback

"Within 6 months of signing up the enthusiasm and potential of how we can promote Health and Wellbeing throughout the College has taken hold and now after receiving our Bronze, 2014 is looking to be a very exciting year.  The Award programme has enabled us to look into what our staff would like to access and benefit from in the future and ultimately will help towards maintaining a happy, healthy and motivated workforce"- Rebecca Smith, Truro and Penwith College

Pedometer Feedback

"The pedometer challenge was excellent for pushing me out of the door to exercise on rainy windy nights when I would otherwise have stayed in; it was a great way to get into regular exercise whilst ignoring the blisters on my feet." - David Salter, Financial Controller, Coastline Housing Ltd
