The Derby Telegraph Sports Awards has officially launched and with that a number of sponsors have stepped forwards to express their support.
The first name that is proudly involved is leaders in speciality chemicals, Lubrizol who are dedicated to combining speciality chemicals, optimising the quality of customers’ products and reducing their environmental impact.
When it comes to sponsorship, sponsors are given the choice of 14 different categories to get behind, and for Lubrizol it was the ‘Disabled Sportsperson of the Year’ award that resonated with them.
The category honour an outstanding disabled athlete who has made an impact on in their sporting discipline. Open to sportspeople of all ages the winning applicant of this award will have seen success on the regional, national or international stage.
“Lubrizol is very proud to sponsor local events throughout Derbyshire and have now been a sponsor for local awards over a number of years,” said Simon Griffiths the General Manager at Lubrizol.
“We chose to sponsor the Disabled Sportsperson of the Year award in 2019 and hope to forge stronger links with sport across Derbyshire. Lubrizol has raised thousands of pounds for local charities through sporting events and sponsorships as well as local partnerships with sports clubs and associations.”
The category, and other 13 categories on offer are currently open for nominations. And when the process closes on Friday 30 August will be judged ahead of the official award ceremony.
Mr Griffiths has a clear idea of the winning candidate within the disabled sportsperson of the year award.
“Lubrizol’s success relies upon its people. Their dedication and motivation are key to the growth of our business and we regularly seek inspiration from others,” he said.
“We are sure that the category submissions will inspire our business and hopefully build better connections between the Derbyshire sports community and Lubrizol.”
