Fusion Lifestyle supported the recent Active Braintree Sports Awards by sponsoring the Young Sports Personality of the Year Award. The category, which was hotly contested by four very talented young people, was won by heptathlete Jessica Hopkins. The award was presented by Steve Bentall,Sports and Community Development Manager. He said "it was an honour for Fusion to support this category this year and to help recognise the amazingly talented young sports people in Braintree".
In addition to sponsoring the award, Fusion also had a project in the running for the Physical Activity Project of the Year Award. The Friday Night Live project at Witham Leisure Centre was up against tough competition from other local projects and although it didn't pick up the award,it did receive a high commendation from the judging panel. Teen ambassador Paige Frost collected the award on Fusion's behalf.
Both Jessica and the Friday Night Live Project will now progress to the Active Essex Sports Awards on 5 December.
