The SportsAble charity's annual awards dinner saw members who had achieved great things in sports and fund raising recognised for their efforts.

The world famous disability sports club's chairman Vivienne Davies handed out 50 trophies throughout the evening.

While the Royal Borough's mayor Cllr Paul Lion presented Tamas Gaspar with the charity’s most prestigious trophy The Wilkinson Sword for excelling in the highest level of competitive sport during the year. He is currently training and competing in a bid to secure a place on Team GB for Tokyo 2020.

Mrs Davies said: “Our awards evening is something the whole club looks forward to. With more than 13 sports now available at the club, everyone is working so hard throughout the year to make it happen, The Awards evening is a chance for us to all come together and hear about the incredible members we have.”
