High profile Lancashire sports award sponsored by Thornton Sports

Thornton Sports were honoured to be involved in the Lancashire Sports Awards which took place on Friday 16th January in Blackpool.
Organised by Lancashire Sport Partnership, the awards are the largest annual celebration of amateur sport in the County and were attended by over 400 people. Now in their 13th year, the awards pay tribute to those, young and old, that show dedication to perform at the highest level or those who work tirelessly to support individuals or clubs week in, week out, for the love of sport.

The ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’ sponsored by Thornton Sports for the second year running, was presented to John McCann of the Lancashire School Sailing Association by Thornton Sports’ Managing Director, David Saxby. John was selected to receive the award due to his commitment to sailing for over 42 years. He has secured many thousands of pounds of funding and encouraged many young people to pursue sailing qualifications or to go on to take part in national competitions.

David Saxby comments,

“It’s been a pleasure to be involved in this high profile event once again. The commitment and dedication of the nominees is astounding and I’m sure it will have been a very special night for the award winners.

Followers of Thornton Sports may also notice that we continued our sponsorship of the Borough of Hyndburn’s Sports Awards in September last year. As a leading UK sports surfacing contractor we feel it is important for us to support and encourage sports participation at the community level in our local area.”
