Wednesday the 31st of October saw Active Sussex release the shortlist for the annual Sussex Sports Awards 2018 to be held at the Grand Hotel on Brighton seafront on Friday the 23rd of November.
Earlier the previous week, our Chairman, Luke Boorer received notice that he had been nominated for the Sports Awards in the category of Volunteer of the Year. Wednesday saw Luke receive an email from Active Sussex to inform his of the judges decision to shortlist Luke along with Eric Douglin from Bexhill Giants Basketball and Heidi Emery from Eastbourne Borough Walking Football Club.
Luke, who is Chairman and was the founder of Hellingly HoundDogs won the same category in 2017 Sussex sports Award added “Its a real honor to be nominated, let along short listed. It was a real high for me in 2017 and just as bigger honor this year too. However, I would like to thank the whole Committee at the HoundDogs who help out behind the scenes as well as my wife who has to put up with me talking about football and the HoundDogs pretty much all the time! I love helping out the HoundDogs and seeing the smiles on the players faces as they represent the club. I wish all the other nominees the best of luck across all the categories and hope everyone has a fantastic evening”.
The HoundDogs had already been invited to the Sports Awards to collect their ClubMark certificate from Active Sussex.
