The Hampshire Disability Cricket Programme, sponsored by Bluebird Care, won the National Lottery Good Causes - Best Sports Project award on Saturday. The awards were presented live on BBC One as part of this Saturday’s National Lottery programme.
The National Lottery Awards are an annual search to find the UK’s favourite Lottery-funded projects. All the projects entered in the competition had already received Lottery funding and the Awards recognise the difference that these projects make to local communities, and celebrate the achievements of the people behind them. There were seven categories in the Awards, each reflecting an area of Lottery funding. A short film on each of the finalists was also played during the special BBC One programme.
Paul Tarsey, MD of Bluebird Care said,
"When we began our sponsorship of the Hampshire Disability Cricket project, we always knew that this was a worthwhile and important sports project which really helps those in the local community. Lottery funding has been absolutely crucial to this project and winning this award has given us a great opportunity to highlight the project. We have received fantastic support throughout all stages of the competition and I would especially like to thank everyone who has voted for us."
