We are exceptionally proud to continue our support for grass roots sport in the region and our main sponsorship of the Sport Newcastle awards, held at the Newcastle Civic Centre.
The award event celebrates the success of emerging sporting talent, sporting success and achievements in the region, including the rising star awards for young aspiring talent.
Supporting grass roots sports and helping sporting dreams of young people and sports clubs and organisations, Sport Newcastle is the City's oldest and inclusive sports charity.
This year we sponsored the Sporting Success of the Year award which was awarded to 22 year old Kieran Riley from Gateshead, who is the reigning European BMX Freestyle champion and recent gold medal winner at the Cycling World Championships in Glasgow.
The amazing dare devil BMX free styler now has his sights set on Olympic gold in Paris next year and Paul Blight our Head of Wealth Management was delighted to be on hand to present him with his award.
Mike Booth, Sport Newcastle, Vice Chair, said, "Our major award winners reflect the region's success achieved across a diverse range of female and male sports.
"With the ongoing support of the local business community this augurs well for the future, so a big thank you again to everyone at Tier One Capital for their continued support for our charity."
