Last week we were very proud to hear that the Cumbria Cricket U15 Team, who are sponsored by Sally's Cottages, were nominated in the Junior Team of the Year category at the Active Cumbria Sports Awards.
This week, we are even happier to say that the team won the award at a ceremony on Friday the 29th of November at Low Wood Bay Hotel in Windermere.
The same team have had a successful year, as they were also the winners at the Ampleforth U15 Cricket Festival in August.
This year is the 40th anniversary of the Cumbria Sports Awards, which is sponsored by United Utilities in 2019. It celebrates sporting achievements across the county as well as showcasing the work that is done throughout the year to develop skills, facilities and participation in sport in Cumbria. At the Friday ceremony, England cricketer Ben Stokes, originally from Cockermouth, was named as Sports Personality of the Year and was awarded for Performance of the Year.
Sally's Cottages are delighted to have played a small part in supporting sport and young people in Cumbria. Congratulations to the whole U15 team and the other winners and nominees!
