England Athletics – London Region, completed its award ceremony via Zoom last Thursday, 19th November. These were awards for volunteers who contribute towards our sport. The club had four nominations for the final shortlist and three of our club members won awards, with the fourth as a runner-up. Details of their nominations were previously announced and is on our club website.
Keith Hopson and Don Blackett jointly won the award for services to athletics. This is a deserved award for the years they have both put into Athletics. Sam Wintle won the award for the Young Volunteer of the year for his work with our U11’s, the Woodford Wasps. He has continued to do so under difficult circumstances this year. Tamsin James finished as runner up in the Official of the year category for her continued work on track and field at local and national level.
The winners will go on to represent the London Region when England Athletics hold the event at the National level. The London Region award ceremony can be seen on the England Athletics You Tube channel.
