Solicitors Rix & Kay who have offices in Uckfield, and across Sussex and Kent, are supporting the annual Sussex Sports Awards 2019 which take place on Friday (November 22).
The awards, organised by Active Sussex, and now in their 17th year, will be held at the Brighton Metropole and the host will be Olympic legend Kriss Akabusi.
The theme is Sussex Superheroes and the aim is to showcase and celebrate everything that is super about Sussex sport and physical activity, and the achievements of the county’s elite athletes, and those at grassroots level.
Rix & Kay has long supported the Sussex Sport Awards and delighted to be involved again this year.
The firm is promoting the Sussex Sport ‘Team of the Year’ award where three teams shortlisted are Worthing College Under 19 Netball Team, Sussex Thunder Netball Team, and University of Brighton’s Men’s Rugby Union 1st Team.
Rix & Kay’s chairman Bruce Hayter, who has worked closely with Active Sussex and their chief executive Sadie Mason MBE for many years said: “Rix & Kay is well known across Sussex and Kent for supporting both professional and grass roots sports clubs and our involvement with Active Sussex and the Sussex Sports Awards is something we are very proud of.
“In 2019, we have also been privileged to work alongside Active Sussex, helping to drive the agenda forward for disability sport in Sussex and Brighton, joining other organisations to discuss how to tackle social isolation and how sports clubs, from professional to grassroots, can ensure that those with disabilities have the opportunity to play and succeed in the sport they love”.
