Celebrate Nottinghamshire's outstanding sporting success

Awards Ceremony

The 2016 Nottingham Sports Awards will culminate in a lavish awards ceremony on 27th October, at the East Midlands Conference Centre. Guests will be welcomed to the evening with a Champagne reception before enjoying a fabulous three course gourmet meal. Following this, the friends and family of the finalists are invited to join the evening to watch the ceremony, where the winner of each category will be announced. A host of sporting celebrities will attend the evening and will present each award alongside the category sponsor.

The night will raise money for Rainbows Children’s Hospice which is based in Loughborough and opened its doors in 1994. At Rainbows, they are dedicated to meeting the needs of the children and young people from the East Midlands who come to the hospice with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions. Their work extends throughout the child’s or young person’s life and beyond into bereavement support as required. Each year they need to raise £4.2m to keep the fourteen-bed hospice operational. This money is donated by generous individuals and businesses from across the East Midlands who have taken Rainbows into their hearts.

Through a small game and silent auction which will take place throughout the evening, we plan to raise much needed funds for this truly worthwhile cause.

The first host for the evening is English international badminton player, Gail Emms MBE, who will be on hand to make sure everything runs smoothly. The room will also be full of current and former sporting celebrities to add an extra sparkle to the evening.
