Annandale and Eskdale Sports Academy Shortlisted for National Award

Joining the shortlist in the Beyond Sport Awards, a major awards programme for sporting initiatives, is the Dumfries and Galloway Council’s Annandale and Eskdale Sports Academy.

The Academy is one of four shortlisted projects (alongside Tottenham Hotspur FC) for the Beyond Sport Awards in the P&G UK Impact Award Category.

This category demonstrates how sport is used to address social issues specific to the communities where it is based and how it utilised the power, support, resources or inspiration of the London 2012 Olympic Games to further its mission and objectives.

The winner of the P&G UK Impact Award will be announced on the night and will receive a funding package of £10,000.

Chair of Annandale and Eskdale Area Committee Councillor Denis Male said this shortlisting is a fantastic recognition for the Annandale and Eskdale Sports Academy, that this year celebrates its 10th year.

“The Sport Academy continues to deliver inspiring programmes and creates so many opportunities for participation and further development,” Mr Male said.
