The Hackney Sports Awards recognise the hard-won success of the borough's sportspeople, as well as the huge contribution they make to the civic life of our community. If anybody knows of somebody who deserves recognition for their sporting contributions, they should get nominating and help celebrate all the outstanding talent and commitment we have in Hackney.
