A wonderful night was had by all who celebrated the success of the athletes at the awards ceremony at
‘The Teams Club’ in Gateshead 18th December 2017.
It was a pleasure to see all of the athletes re-uniting to accept awards from Laurie McMenemy, the FA Cup Winner, and Josef Craig, British Paralympic gold medallist, for their participation and achievements at various national and international events over the past year. What amazing results have been achieved, a huge well done to all athletes!
We celebrated the success of the athletes during the London trip in October, 2017. Craig and Matthew from Learning for Life and the rest of the team from Gateshead, Jake, Paul, Daniel, Eddy and Mark, we are so proud of them for achieving 10 Bronze, 2 Silver and a Gold medal!
Learning for Life athletes hope to participate in competitions next year and look forward to the victories ahead!
A huge thank you goes to the Gateshead Special Olympics team, Keith Hogan, the coaches, staff, volunteers and all who make this a wonderful experience. We are looking forward to working together next year!
