Make It Happen Awards
Mary Peters Trust applications are now closed for 2016 Bluefin Sport “Make It Happen” Awards.
Bluefin Sport, alongside the Mary Peters Trust, are supporting local talented athletes and are on the lookout for more sporting talent. The 2016 Awards are now closed for application at this moment.
Last year’s winners Shenna McKiverigan, cyclist, and Ashley Robinson, table tennis, are shining examples of the sporting talent we have plenty of in Northern Ireland.
These annual awards provide two athletes with £2,000. This is funded equally by specialist insurance broker Bluefin Sport and the Mary Peters Trust. Athletes should apply for their proposed specialist training and/or coaching that will ‘Make It Happen’ in their sporting career.
Alyn Spratt, Head of Sport for Northern Ireland, Bluefin Sport said “We are thrilled to continue our support of these awards and to be associated with the fantastic work of the Mary Peters Trust. It’s inspiring to see the impact that this can have in helping athletes achieve their sporting goals and ambitions. We encourage eligible athletes in Northern Ireland to apply”.
Eilish Rutherford, Chairman, Mary Peters Trust said, “This support from Bluefin Sport is invaluable to our charity, these large awards are designed to give the selected athletes a boost in their sporting careers, funding will give them the opportunity to target a skill or technique to help their competition and give them a competitive edge. It is even more important in light of the budgets that are continually being cut in all aspects of sport at present”.
Nomination forms for the 2016 Bluefin Sport ‘Make It Happen’ Awards are available from all sporting governing bodies or the Mary Peters Trust. Applications closed on Monday 14 November 2016. The winners will be announced in December.
