Local housebuilder Bovis Homes has stepped in to support an annual event which celebrates the sporting achievements of young people across Shropshire.
Bovis Homes has sponsored the Shropshire Schools Sports Athletics Association’s annual International Evening, which recognises students from across the county who have gained international representative honours over the last year.
“We are delighted to have provided support for this event, which is a fantastic way to bring together, encourage and highlight the sporting achievements of young people across Shropshire,” says Elaine Cartwright, Bovis Homes regional sales and marketing director. “The commitment the pupils have shown is fantastic and it’s exciting to think that we could be seeing much more of these rising stars in the future!”
The event took place at Shirehall in Shrewsbury and saw young sportspeople presented with awards for achievements in a wide range of fields, including ice hockey, golf, football and swimming.
The Shropshire Schools Sports Athletics Association was established in 1953 to encourage and promote sports across the county. It has been running its annual awards since 1986 and also organises inter-area competitions, which bring students together from schools across Shropshire and Telford and Wrekin.
