Thornton Sports at Lancashire Sports Awards Thornton Sports at Lancashire Sports Awards Thornton Sports at Lancashire Sports Awards

Secondary school sports award sponsored by Thornton Sports

Thornton Sports were honoured to be involved in the Lancashire Sports Awards, which took place on Friday 4th December in Preston.

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 14th 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 ‘Secondary School of the Year Award’ sponsored by Thornton Sports, was presented to St. Michael’s CE High School Academy, Chorley by Thornton Sports’ Marketing Manager, Joanna Marshall. The school were given this award as they involve all children regardless of physical ability, offering roles as officials and coaches to children who might not see their future in practical performance. They also have a number of Young Ambassadors who promote sport within the school through the Sports Council.

Joanna Marshall 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 have sponsored the Lancashire Sports Awards for the past 3 years. 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.”
