Winners Announced for Sporting Achievement Awards 2017
11th January 2018
Thursday 11th January 2018 saw the Guernsey Sports Commission host their annual Sporting Achievment Awards held at Beau Sejour Leisure Centre. The evening celebrated the success of individuals and teams that had performed to an outstanding level in 2017. Tim Wotton, a full time communications consultant, award-winning author and former field hockey player for England was the special guest. He spoke openly about his health struggle with cystic fibrosis which has been a huge factor in his life, but not one that has defined it. Tim gave a truly moving and inspiring talk which was well received by the 400 guests in attendance. Tim was also on hand to present the awards to the 12 recipients...
