Nottingham Forest announced as lead sponsor of the Celebrating Rushcliffe Awards
Nottingham Forest have been announced as the lead sponsor of the Celebrating Rushcliffe Awards.
The collaboration with Rushcliffe Borough Council builds on the club’s continued work with communities across Nottinghamshire, teaming up with the authority to acknowledge the borough’s volunteers, businesses and environmentalists.
The awards celebrate clubs and organisations, sports teams and athletes and the best of Rushcliffe’s health and wellbeing and food and drink sectors.
It will culminate in the club sponsoring and presenting the final and most prestigious award of the evening, The Pride of Rushcliffe Award, which honours an individual or organisation who make others proud to live in Rushcliffe, leading by example to make the borough a better place to live and work.
At a launch at The City Ground, Forest chairman Nicholas Randall QC met leader of the council Simon Robinson and Liv Steer, who is shortlisted for the Young Person of the Year Award and Max Woodburn, who is shortlisted for the Young Environmentalist of the Year Award.
He said: “We are delighted to sponsor the Celebrating Rushcliffe Awards to recognise the fantastic achievements of individuals, teams and organisations across the borough.
“As a club, we are very proud to call Rushcliffe our home and it is vitally important to us to ensure we play our part in the community.
“We are very much looking forward to the evening and celebrating the achievements of everyone in the borough, as well as handing over the prestigious Pride of Rushcliffe Award.”
More than 30 groups and individuals have been shortlisted for this year’s accolades and all have been invited to a ceremony at the Becket School in West Bridgford on November 20 to showcase their achievements.
