Nominate Your Business For A London Sport Award

By Community | June 18, 2021

It’s time to say thank you to London’s business heroes who have made significant and invaluable contributions to the community physical activity and sport sector as the London Sport Awards returns for 2021.

Londoners are being encouraged to nominate the business or corporate partnership which has made its mark for the London Sport Awards 2021 – the biggest celebration of grassroots physical activity and sport in the capital – by Thursday 15 July.

The Awards is run by strategic body London Sport who are aiming to make London the world’s most physically active city by supporting the inactive to get active and ensuring young Londoners develop healthy physical activity habits for life. The London Sport Awards will be supported, for the second year running, by the City of London Corporation, with an in-person ceremony set to take place at the stunning Guildhall on Monday 6 December, subject to the easing of covid-19 restrictions on social gatherings.

The Business Contribution Award category will recognise the contribution of commercial organisations, large and small, to community physical activity and sport whether that is through practical support, advice, mentorship, collaboration and/or investment.

The Award, won by UBS in 2020 for their work alongside SportInspired in Hackney, celebrates businesses with a bold and innovative approach to Responsible Business who can demonstrate they make a real tangible difference in local communities using the power of sport and physical activity.

Keith Bottomley, Vice Chair of the City of London Corporation’s Policy and Resources Committee, and London Sport Awards judge, said: “Business has always played a vital role in promoting, sponsoring and providing resources to allow more people to take part in sport, and that has only increased in importance during the pandemic.

“The Business Contribution Award is about recognising firms across London who’ve gone the extra mile to help people get fit, get active and take part in grassroots sport, making a real, positive difference to the communities they serve.”

Tanya Rabin, London Sport’s Director of Commercial, Marketing and Communications, said: “The Awards shines a spotlight on the incredible, and often unrecognised, work done by individuals and organisations in communities across the city to improve Londoners’ lives through physical activity and sport. Nominate your business for a London Sport Award

This year’s Awards will be particularly special as we recognise and celebrate the individuals, organisations and projects that have continued to champion the power of sport and physical activity and kept London moving during the pandemic.”

The sixth London Sport Awards, which remains free to enter, will have ten categories to reflect the breadth of activity in the capital. Find out more about the categories and how to submit nominations here or by contacting awards@londonsport.org.
