An annual celebration of sporting achievements, physical activity and community activation is set to return to Ewood Park on Friday 17th November 2023, and is looking for event sponsors to help make this possible.

The Active Lancashire Awards is returning to celebrate local clubs, individuals and schools who champion physical activity and its benefits to health, social inclusion and community integration.

The awards, which have now been running for over 20 years, regularly garner immense support from local businesses who want to demonstrate their commitment for a healthier Lancashire.

The event is attended by over 300 people and also broadcast online again after the event. The event provides subsidised tickets to guests and as such can only take place with the support of sponsors.

Sponsorship packages provide significant benefits, including the chance to present awards directly to winners and appear in their official photos as well as coverage in the event programme, on screens around the event and in news releases. Sponsor logos also appear on trophies as well as on finalist certificates for all nominated guests.

Representatives from sponsors also take part in a publicised panel to help choose winners for each category.

For the first time a portion of each category sponsorship will be awarded as prize money to the winner to support them with their chosen activity, further exemplifying the sponsors' dedication to active communities in Lancashire.

Categories this year include Coach, Volunteer and Club of the Year. Awards will also be given to clubs or individuals who make a big difference to their local communities or who support the mental wellbeing of others through activity.

There are also categories that aim to celebrate schools who go to great lengths to improve the health and fitness of their pupils.

Chief executive of Active Lancashire, Adrian Leather, said, "The Active Lancashire Awards serve as a powerful catalyst for positive change. By recognising and celebrating the achievements of individuals and groups who have embraced physical activity, Active Lancashire and our event sponsors inspire others to follow suit. The benefits of an active lifestyle are far-reaching, enhancing both physical and mental wellbeing, and strengthening our communities.”

“It’s not just the 300 event attendees who leave inspired - last year we estimate our awards reached tens of thousands of local people, with the event creating a huge buzz and high engagement online. We would love to hear from any potential sponsor who wants to help us continue to reach people and encourage movement and activity across the county.”

Nominations for the event are largely made through local events such as the Active Burnley Awards, Blackpool Active Lives Community Awards, Preston Sports Awards and Blackburn with Darwen Sports Council Awards, with their winners automatically being shortlisted for the regional event. However, the Active Lancashire Awards will also launch a direct nomination form for some districts on their website this summer.
