Junior Sports Team of the Year
Once again we are very happy to be supporting the Oxfordshire Sports Awards and this year sponsoring the Junior Sports Team Award which recognises the fantastic achievements and commitment of some of our local young people involved in sport.
Engaging people in sport and physical activity from a young age has far reaching benefits for our communities and is something we value and support through a number of projects; including our Youth Ambition programme.
The Oxfordshire Sports Awards are a great way to reflect on the sporting achievements in the city and county from the last year and in particular to thank all of those involved in helping to make this sport happen and we are looking forward to being a part of the event again this year
