Lancashire Telegraph: Sports stars

Lancashire Telegraph: Jay Jay Rodriguez, former Burnley FC striker

I attended last year’s awards and was overwhelmed by the hard work and dedication put in to amateur sport. Awards like these are great to highlight that work.


Lancashire Telegraph: Sophie Sophie Hitchon, hammer thrower

It is great to see awards like this, we are able to say thank you to everyone that has helped us to get to where we are, not just awarding the athletes for their success.


Lancashire Telegraph: hlm Holly Lam-Moores, handball star

Whether you go on to perform at the highest level or enjoy sport locally, to have support as a youngster is vital. I’ll always remember those coaches who helped me.


Lancashire Telegraph: Laura Massaro Laura Massaro, squash champ

The importance of local coaches can’t be underestimated. This is when young players learn the importance of discipline, hard work and dedication.


Lancashire Telegraph: Kevin Gallacher Kevin Gallacher, ex-Rovers

You don’t realise the talent there is and dedication that goes in to amateur sport until you witness it yourself. I was taken aback when I attended last year’s awards.


Lancashire Telegraph: Gary Gary Keedy, Lancashire CC ace

I will always be grateful to those coaches who helped me reach the top. It’s important that today’s children get that support and I welcome awards like these.

Lancashire Telegraph: United Utilities

Lancashire Telegraph: MD Steve Fraser ,Managing Director, United Utilities

It gives me great pleasure to support the Lancashire Telegraph’s Grass Roots Heroes Awards again this year.

During our involvement last year, I was struck by the drive, energy and dedication of so many people, young and old, putting sporting achievement firmly on the map in East Lancashire. It was fantastic to be able to give those local heroes the recognition they deserve, and I am looking forward to seeing even more nominations this year.

Sport is a hugely important part of community life and I know these awards couldn’t take place without support from local business. I see United Utilities very much as a local business and it’s right that we get involved in the communities where we work. We’re there from the minute you get up and put the kettle on, to when you brush your teeth last thing at night. Our aim is to keep things flowing smoothly behind the scenes while you get on with your life.

I’m conscious that we’ve been very visible over the last year or so, especially on the streets of Blackburn and Darwen, while we carry out a major upgrade of the sewer systems. The end result will be cleaner water in our rivers and canals, and ultimately cleaner coastal waters.

I’m grateful for the patience local people are showing while we’re such a regular fixture in the community, and for that reason we’re proud to be cheering on this year’s Grass Roots Heroes all the way.
