Allerdale Sports Awards 2017

The Allerdale Sport Awards 2017 will be held on the 3rd November at the New Workington Leisure Centre.
This years event is really special, as it is in the new centre we have international athletes Lauren Crawford and Henry Cookey as our special guests for the evening who will not only be talking to BBC Radio Cumbria's Mike Zeller, but will also be taking to the floor to show us what their sports (Karate and Taekwondo) look like up close.

The awards recognise the successes of teams and individuals throughout the borough who are involved in sport and have had success over the 2016/2017 seasons. As well as celebrating sporting talent, the awards recognise the hard work of family, volunteers and coaches.

Tickets are available to buy (adults £18, under 12's £15). Drinks reception from 6.30pm, followed by buffet evening meal at 7pm, awards commence at 7.45pm.
