Chief Executive of Active Tameside, Mark Tweedie, said: “We are looking forward to a fantastic Sports Awards this year. It is always wonderful to see the community coming together to support the great work Tameside does in sport, health and wellbeing and with our new categories it means we get to the opportunity to highlight even more of this work.”

Director of the Believe and Achieve Trust, Alison Williams, said: “We feel so honoured that we are able to acknowledge a young person’s drive to achieve in sport. Being involved with Active Tameside, who like us, believe that everyone should be able to access and be involved with sport is really important to our charity, so it’s a great feeling that we can support such a great night!”

Winners at the Sports Awards, which will take place at Dukinfield Town Hall on Friday 22nd September, will then go on to represent Tameside at the Greater Manchester Sports Awards.
