Disability sports charity, SportsAble, celebrated a season of sporting achievements and volunteer work with its annual awards dinner at the Braywick Road sports and events centre.

Awards were given to beginners and pros from a wide range of sports including archery, boccia, ten pin bowling and others.

The event was hosted by SportsAble Chairman, Vivienne Davies and special guests included paralympic athletes Sophie Christiansen and Jeanette Chippington on Saturday, February 25.

Forty-three trophies and awards were given out to members of all ages throughout the course of the evening, including the likes of Ben Harris, 41, of Slough, who won the Wheelchair Basketball Coaches’ Trophy for being the outstanding player in 2016 and always being there to help out.

Other notable winners at the Maidenhead event were 70-year-old Angelo Delin from Maidenhead, who regained confidence in the water after an illness and several operations and won the Bigg and Norris Trophy for Most Notable Male in the swimming pool.

Adam Hussain, six, from Slough, won The Ng Trophy for striving hard in the swimming pool and for achieving his Alpha step 3 award.

Vivienne Davies, Chairman of SportsAble said: “It was certainly the largest gathering of members and friends that I have hosted here. Having all of our VIPS and guests here was just so wonderful and I was delighted to have Sophie and Jeanette with us. They are such inspirational figures to our members and are two very special ladies who gave us some ‘proud to be British’ moments last summer whilst competing at the Paralympics in Rio.”

Mayor of the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, Sayonara Luxton said: “I would like to thank John Jenkins MBE, Vivienne Davies and Steve Holmes and everyone else for the great work they do for the charity.”

Without your help this would not be possible.”
