Each year the Bucks & MK Sport Awards recognises and thanks those individuals and organisations who work so hard to help make sport happen and in turn contribute to improving the lives of local residents.
However 2020 has been a year like no other, and sadly as a result we’ve had to take the decision that the annual Bucks & MK Sport Awards won’t be taking place in its usual format.
Whilst we won’t be gathering face to face this year to celebrate community sport and activity, we know that there has been some great work taking place. We know that we have community champions across the county who have gone above and beyond during the pandemic to keep residents in the county moving.
We have our Winners of the Bucks & MK Sports Awards!!
