London Sport Events Manager Rachel Rowe looks at how the London Sport Awards 2020, supported by the City of London Corporation, will celebrate those who make their mark on the city.
One month to go.
The London Sport Awards is without a doubt the highlight of my year as Event Manager at London Sport and, as you can imagine, with the fifth annual London Sport Awards just a few weeks away things are pretty busy at the moment.
Already, we’ve received more than 250 nominations across our ten Awards categories, two of which were new for this year, unveiled a title sponsor in the City of London Corporation, and announced our 32 shortlisted nominees live on BBC Radio London.
We’ll be announcing our host, guest speakers and introducing the night’s entertainment in due course, but before that, I’m delighted to confirm we’ll be painting the venue red (and lots more colours) this year with our Make Your Mark theme.
You may have already seen Make Your Mark being brought to life with vibrant paint splashes across our Awards emails and on our social media channels.
It’s dynamic and bold and fits perfectly with everything that the Awards, and the people we are celebrating, are all about.
The London Sport Awards, supported by the City of London Corporation, are all about bringing the sector in London together and celebrating those who are making their mark here in London and changing people’s lives through physical activity and sport.
We want to recognise the unsung heroes who are making a real difference within their communities and contributing to making London a happier, healthier and more physically active city.
It was inspiring to see so many people doing such great work and making a big impact across London.
There were some incredible projects and groups who, unfortunately, didn’t quite make it onto our shortlist following the judging day. The judges had some extremely tough decisions to make, it is always at this point that I wish we could have more than ten winners.
I cannot wait to welcome everyone in their Black Tie and Trainers to the Guildhall on Friday 6 March for the Awards, for what promises to be an inspiring, heart-warming evening shining a light on the true heroes of sport and physical activity in London.
If you want to join us, be quick because tickets are selling out fast.
See you there.
