Canary Wharf Sports Personality of the Year Awards

Tonight saw the prestigious 12th annual Sports Personality of the Year Awards, at the East Wintergarden in Canary Wharf.

People of all ages and backgrounds joined together to celebrate the commitment and achievements of local sporting talent.

Hosted by Canary Wharf Group PLC and hearing from John Garwood and Cormac Crann, the audience showed appreciation for the individual and team contributions to sports and community development.

Kaos Football provided some world record breaking 'keepy-uppy' entertainment, also getting the audience, local MP Jim Fitzpatrick and celeb Tommy 'Garden Force' Walsh involved in a special trick.

We also heard inspiring stories from Christine Ohuruogu and Joey O'Brien, of West Ham before moving on to the nominations and winning presentations for the following awards;

Individual Achievement Award - Ashley Facey Thompson
Junior Team of the Year Award - Westward Boys U13's B Team
Senior Team of the Year Award - Ralph Humphries & Bob Mulligan
Group of the Year Award - Newark Youth London

Millwall Rugby Club were delighted to receive a nomination for their outstanding contribution to sport in the community and had a strong attendance on the night, with members of the various teams and Committee accepting the award from Ohuruogu and O'Brien.

Many thanks to Canary Wharf Group for continuing to support sport in the community.
