Active Suffolk Awards to be announced by video at the end of the month!

After a successful nomination period which ended last month, Active Suffolk invite you to celebrate this year's winners who will be announced via three premiere video screenings which will kick off from Monday 29th November.

Due to the unprecedented events of 2020 caused by the coronavirus pandemic, the traditional award ceremony was replaced last year with the Lockdown Activity Hero campaign. This year the Active Suffolk Awards are back and continue to build upon the success of the Lockdown Activity Hero campaign.

The Active Suffolk Awards acknowledge and celebrate those in Suffolk who have selflessly supported local communities to be more active or who them, themselves have made achievements through physical activity & sport.

Following the nomination period, an independent judging panel have shortlisted and decided on the winners for the nine award categories: My Active Community Award, The Active Advocate Awards, The Active Change Award, The Active Coach Award, The Active Club Award, The Inspiring Sportsperson Award, The Young Inspiring Sportsperson Award and The Active Primary School Award.

Gareth Davies, Director at Active Suffolk says:

"As the new Director at Active Suffolk, I cannot wait to welcome you to spectate the Active Suffolk Awards online. It has taken great coordination to bring these awards to you in this way and we are so thankful to all of those involved, especially Summer Isle Films.

As always, the calibre of nominations received during this time has been second to none and we are grateful to everyone who has been recognised thus far for their selfless efforts to support local people to be active, particularly whilst we navigate through a pandemic.

Our aim at Active Suffolk is to increase physical activity levels across Suffolk, not only to support our physical health but our mental wellbeing too and we could not do this without those across the county with a shared vision."

The video premieres will announce the winners of each of the award categories over a three-day period from 4-5PM which is scheduled as follows:

Monday 29th November 2021
