TEAM GB’s success shines a golden spotlight on Derby Telegraph Sports Awards 2016!

Following the magnificent success of Team GB’s medal haul in the summer, the golden spotlight will shine and inspire the finalists and the winners of the Derby Telegraph Sports Awards 2016!

Smith Partnership is proud to be the headline sponsor again in 2016, having been thrilled to have met local Olympian gold medal winner Hollie Webb last year!

The Derby Telegraph Sports Awards celebrates and rewards the outstanding achievements of Derbyshire’s exceptional sporting successes. Across professional and amateur sport in the area, disabled and non-disabled people will be recognised, demonstrating that Derbyshire really is home to some of the most successful sporting talents and rising stars in the country today.

Russell Davies, Head of Commercial Services and Partner said: “With the inspirational performance of Team GB this summer and our local glorious Olympians, everyone at Smith Partnership is both proud and excited to be headline sponsors again this year and to be backing the Community Award.

“Sport is close to all of our hearts and we know it plays an enormously positive role in binding the local community together and inspiring people of all ages to be active.

“These Awards are a great opportunity to celebrate the many sporting achievements we have seen in Derbyshire over the last year and, given our commitment to the local area, choosing to recognise all those who work so hard was a very simple decision.”

The awards presentation dinner, which will take place on Thursday, 10th November 2016 and will be supported by businesses and organisations from across the Derbyshire region. The evening will be a stylish and high profile affair as we welcome a host of sporting personalities to present each award.
