Charterhouse Club joined local organisations at Sport Godalming’s annual awards ceremony at the Wilfrid Noyce Centre on Friday 26th October 2018. The awards recognised the sporting achievements of local athletes and volunteers. There were 16 categories including Outstanding Service to Sport, Cycling Award, Volunteer of the Year and more.
During the ceremony Tim Ostle, Commercial Director at Charterhouse, presented the Sports Personality of the Year Award to Chris Carson who is recognised for his world-class talent in Sprint Kayaking. Chris who trains at the Club was delighted to receive the Charterhouse Club shield.
The event was held in the presence of many guests of honour including Ken Schofield CBE and his wife Evelyn, the Mayor of Waverley, Cllr Denise Le Gal, the Mayor and Mayoress of Godalming, Cllr, Nick Williams and Jeanne Williams, along with other distinguished guests from the local sporting world, nominees and supporters.
Simon Crowther, Chairman of Sport Godalming said, “These awards evenings are always very special, not only for those athletes and teams being recognised but also by their supporters, coaches and families.
“This year was no exception and the buzz around a packed Wilfrid Noyce Centre was truly electric. From my side, I would like to thank the Sport Godalming team for all their contributions, on and leading up to the evening.
“We were honoured to have both Mayors from Waverley and Godalming in attendance as well as Ken Schofield, whose words were inspirational. All in all a terrific evening and we look forward to 2019 and doing it all over again!”
