    SPONSORSHIP PACK

  • Dear Potential SponsorThe Gloucestershire Media sports awards are recognised as the leading sports awards in our county.

    From grassroots sporting heroes to the leading professional competitors, they reward outstanding sportsmen and sportswomen as well as our rising young stars.

    Every week thousands take part in sport across our county.For some it is their living, but the vast majority play for nothing more than the sheer love of participating in their sport.

    The Gloucester Citizen, Gloucestershire Echo and Stroud Life aim to highlight not only those who excel in their sport, but those unsung heroes and heroines whose work goes on unnoticed behind the scenes.

    Sport is such an important part of many peoples lives and our awards recognise their achievements.

    We are hoping for more entries than ever this year and, whether youre involved as an individual or as part of a club, we hope youll nominate your favourites.

    Kevan Blackadder Editor, Gloucestershire Echo & Jenny Eastwood, Editor Gloucester Citizen
