IF THERE is one thing the Herefordshire & Worcestershire Sports Awards teaches us, it is the fact that sport changes lives.

Whether you play it, watch it, coach it or volunteer in it, sport has the power to make a difference to the lives of everyone across the two counties.

In Herefordshire and Worcestershire there are thousands of people participating in the sport they love, whether it is at the beginning of their journey, making positive changes to their lives or at the pinnacle of their sporting dream.

The Sports Awards are the Sports Partnership Herefordshire and Worcestershire’s way of recognising and rewarding those people who participate, coach or volunteer in sport on a day-to-day basis and this could be your chance to associate your brand alongside this prestigious event in a year when sport is greater than ever.

This celebration of the sporting talent, achievements and contributions of individuals and clubs across the counties of Herefordshire and Worcestershire will be recognised and rewarded.

Shortlisted nominees will be invited to attend the event alongside Team GB and Paralympic GB sporting stars and medallists and guest speaker Sharron Davies MBE.

More than 220 amateur and professional sports people will be in attendance along with local businesses, press and leading local figures including the mayor and civic leaders.

As a not-for-profit organisation, sponsorship not only makes it possible for the County Sports Partnership to host the annual sports awards, but it enables the partnership to give the nominees and winners the recognition and thank you they deserve.

Stephen Brewster, Chief Executive Officer of Sports Partnership Herefordshire and Worcestershire, said: “Over the years, we’ve received such huge support for the awards and the partners that we have attracted share with us in wanting to recognise, reward and celebrate the positive impact that individuals and clubs are making on sport and physical activity.

“The awards offer a great opportunity for businesses and organisations to gain exposure and expand their consumer base, reaching new audiences.

“What better time to be involved in sport than in an Olympic and Paralympic year?”

Sponsoring the awards in any capacity is a fantastic opportunity to not only enhance your company’s reputation throughout the local community, but to reach potential new customers, show your appreciation for our local sporting heroes and be associated with sport at a time when British sport is at an all-time high.

There are many forms of sponsorship available, from headline sponsorship packages to hospitality, category and in-kind options, all great opportunities for your business to provide a greater reach to entirely new audiences.

The Herefordshire & Worcestershire Sports Awards is your opportunity to be associated with an organisation at the forefront of driving forward sport and physical activity across the two counties at a time of great interest and profile.
