Nottingham celebrated at the Notts Getting Active Together Awards 2020

The efforts and achievements of individuals and groups who are using physical activity to help improve the lives of people across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire were recognised at the Notts Getting Active Together awards on the evening of the 5 March at Lakeside Arts, Nottingham.

The exciting awards were jointly presented by sports broadcaster Colin Hazelden and GEM Radio presenter Jo Russell, with 200 guests attending the celebration. Entertainment was provided by Our Dementia Choir, Infinity 8 from Dukeries Young People Centre, Freedom Foundation and Nottingham Gymnastics Club.

The night celebrated some of the amazing work happening in our communities and Active Notts, who organised the event, want the opportunity to thank the volunteers, groups and staff who help to make physical activity the norm. A special thanks also goes to the category sponsors of the event Nottinghamshire County Council and Strategic Leisure.
