The Get Berkshire Active Awards celebrate sport and physical activity achievements in Berkshire over the last year. The awards go not only to people who have excelled in sporting achievement over the previous year, but more importantly to people who have made sport possible for others.
This could include coaches, volunteers, employers, teachers/schools or any other organisation that makes sport and physical activity accessible and enjoyable.

The difference that you are making to children, young people and their families is incredible. To put this into perspective, your £546 raised will pay for a family to stay 20 nights at a CLIC Sargent Home from Home, providing free accommodation close to where their child is receiving cancer treatment."
