In December we held our 35th Annual Sporting Awards Lunch.
The lunch was attended by over 900 disabled children and their helpers from special schools throughout Essex and East Herts.
The children were treated to a traditional Christmas lunch and had the opportunity to meet a host of celebrities, followed by a cabaret, disco and of course a visit from Father Christmas.
The highlight of the Lunch was an award ceremony for some of the children who have made significant achievements in sport. This is to recognise endeavour rather than elitism and can vary from swimming two or three strokes to taking part in an outward bound type course.
The Awards Ceremony was compered by BBC Look East’s Stuart White and he was assisted by our President Frank Bruno, Sir Trevor Brooking, Steve Brown, Tony Cottee, Pat Jennings, Lydia Lucy, Colin McMillan, and Peter and Stephanie Shilton.
