It might be a night to celebrate the finest achievements of the region’s sporting community, but each year the Nottingham Post Sports Awards welcomes the support of local business sponsors.
Butler & Willow, a prominent business in the region, has throw its weight behind one of this year’s 15 award categories.
Based in Long Eaton, the business helps to improve workspaces by providing tailored design, fit-out, refurbishment, workplace furniture and storage solutions. And it’s the Team of the Year award which has garnered their backing.
Dedicated to the triumphs of Nottinghamshire’s sports teams, the category welcomes entries from teams of two or more who have achieved success on a district, county, regional, national or international level.
Of their sponsorship Managing Director, James Willow and Client Director, Becky Garton said: “With teamwork at the heart of what Butler & Willow do and our continued focus on supporting the local community we are honoured to be sponsoring this prestige event.
“We understand first-hand the impact of what sporting communities have on our city and the benefits of sport across several important topics like wellbeing and mental health and therefore we have chosen to sponsor the ‘Team of the year’ at this year’s sports awards.”
Once award entries close on Friday 23 August they will be passed over to an expert panel of judges who will decide on the three finalists and winner.
During a special awards ceremony, which takes place at The East Midlands Conference Centre on Thursday 31 October, representatives from Butler & Willow will present the official trophy to the winning team which Mr Willow hopes will demonstrate a range of key characteristics.
“At Butler & Willow teamwork and respecting others to achieve goals is part of the success of our business and we are looking for similar attributes in the winner of this category,” he said.
“A great team consists of leadership, dedication, culture, respect for others, trust, enjoyment and of course drive and determination for winning results.”
Becky Garton the Client Director at the business added to this by highlighting the skills needed to succeed in sport as a whole.
“To be successful in sport, upmost and foremost you must love your sport,” she said.
“The hours, dedication and sacrifices required to realise your dream; ultimately come from the enjoyment you get from competing.
“You must be driven, passionate, goal orientated with a positive mental attitude to be the best, you must also be prepared to listen to others and learn from your losses and prepared to change things if you need to – practice is key!
