Chandlers backs Sussex sports

Published:  27 September, 2012

EAST SUSSEX: Chandlers Building Supplies has sponsored the 2012 Sussex Sports Awards which were held earlier this month.

Richard Skinner, the merchant's commercial director, said: "We are delighted to be involved in Active Sussex and, in turn, the Sussex Sports Awards.

"This summer has been one of sporting history for our country and it is really important to encourage the younger generation to continue this legacy long into the future. It is fitting that we should be recognising the achievements of our local young sportspeople and I'm proud that Chandlers can be a part of this."

The Sussex Sports Awards, now in its 10th year, has 13 separate awards, including the Outstanding Contribution to Sport Award. Ben Quilter, bronze medal winner at the London 2012 Paralympic Games, launched this year's awards.
