West Midlands Community Sports Awards 2018
We’re back from the West Midlands Community Sports Awards 2018, which was a great evening celebrating and recognising sporting achievement throughout the region.
Mann Broadbent was privileged to sponsor the Community Club of the Year, one of the seven Community Sports Awards.
Doug Kaye, account executive and award presenter, Mann Broadbent, commented: “The six finalists for the Community Club of the Year award at the West Midlands Awards are all incredible and inspirational and I would like to congratulate all of them for the work they are doing to support their community through sport.
“Particular congratulations to Newport Cycling Club: the winners!”
Newport Cycling Club brings the community together through cycling events – supporting members with depression, holding sessions in rurally isolated areas, loaning bikes to new participants and have also grown their female membership to 35% of all members.
Energize chief executive and Chair of WMCSA organising committee Chris Child said: “All of our finalists are shining examples of the way in which sport and physical activity is actively improving lives across the West Midlands. We work very hard to promote and celebrate the broad range of ways in which activity and sport are being used to have a positive impact on the wellbeing of local communities.”
The Community Club of the Year finalists:
- Women’s Boxing Club
- Special Olympics Sandwell
- Worcester Mixed Ability Rugby

The West Midlands Community Sports Awards are run by the region’s six county sports partnerships, in partnership with University of Birmingham and BBC Midlands.
