The Northern Echo Local Heroes Awards has grown to be the region’s premier grassroots sports awards.
Local Heroes celebrates, recognises and rewards achievements in grassroots sports, giving our local heroes a night to remember.
As well as discovering the region’s most talented sports people, Local Heroes identifies and rewards those people who work behind the scenes. Often they do it for the love of it, and dedicate their lives to grassroots sport, without receiving any recognition.
BMI Woodlands Hospital has supported Local Heroes for several years. This year the hospital sponsored and presented the Outstanding Performance Award. The Outstanding Performance Award goes to someone who has produced a one-off display that is particularly impressive or memorable. The award is open to juniors and seniors and covers all sports.
On Thursday 7th December 2017 Jill Neasham, Director of Clinical Services at BMI Woodlands Hospital, presented the 2017 Outstanding Performance award to 13 year old Luke Robinson who created a piece of sporting history playing for Philadelphia Cricket Club’s under 13 team this summer. His achievement of taking six wickets in a single over even made it onto BBC’s Test Match Special.
The awards ceremony was attended by consultants and staff who work out of BMI Woodlands Hospital, including Mr James Webb, Mr Raymond Liow, Mr Richard Jeavons and Mr Yirupaiahgari Viswanath Celebrating the achievements of our Local Heroes at this well organised annual event was enjoyed by everyone.
