The evening is a great way to celebrate the achievements of our fantastic local community and recognise the hard work that they do every single year. This year promises to be extra special of course and we are looking forward to reading everyone’s inspiring nominations!”


Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson spoke on her excitement of hosting again,

“It has been an unprecedented 12 months, and I’m so pleased to be returning to the Everybody Awards this October. I was truly inspired by the heroes and commitment to sporting achievement at the 2019 awards and I can’t wait to meet this year’s finalists. 2020 was certainly a challenging year for health, sport and fitness, but we’ve seen incredible community spirit and innovation in times of hardship, and this years awards will be an opportunity to celebrate how far we’ve come and take a look back at the successes we weren’t able to recognise last year.”
