British Light-Middleweight and World Inter­con­ti­nen­tal Cham­pion boxer Brian Rose, is among a list of high pro­file stars recog­nis­ing Blackpool’s sport­ing talent.

Brian is strongly back¬≠ing the Alto¬≠gether Now ‚Äď a Legacy for Black¬≠pool Com¬≠mu¬≠nity Sports Awards 2014 which will show¬≠case the suc¬≠cesses of both indi¬≠vid¬≠u¬≠als and teams across the town in nine sep¬≠a¬≠rate categories.

For¬≠merly known as the Com¬≠mu¬≠nity Sports Awards which have been held in Black¬≠pool for 25 years, the event will hon¬≠our the ded¬≠i¬≠ca¬≠tion and com¬≠mit¬≠ment of coaches, teams, and vol¬≠un¬≠teers as well as recog¬≠nis¬≠ing out¬≠stand¬≠ing achieve¬≠ment. It will cul¬≠mi¬≠nate in a pre¬≠sen¬≠ta¬≠tion cer¬≠e¬≠mony in the Spon¬≠sors Lounge at Black¬≠pool Foot¬≠ball Club on Thurs¬≠day 3 April.

Alto¬≠gether Now ‚Äď a Legacy for Black¬≠pool is a part¬≠ner¬≠ship between the NHS in Black¬≠pool (Clin¬≠i¬≠cal Com¬≠mis¬≠sion¬≠ing Group and Hos¬≠pi¬≠tals Trust); Black¬≠pool Coun¬≠cil and Black¬≠pool Football Club.

The all-inclusive pro­gramme is aimed at improv­ing the health and well­be­ing of peo­ple in Black­pool, irre­spec­tive of age, race, gen­der or abil­ity through increased phys­i­cal activ­ity, lifestyle changes and an aware­ness of the role men­tal health and well­be­ing play in over­all health.

Brian said: ‚ÄúI am proud to sup¬≠port these awards and the inspi¬≠ra¬≠tional peo¬≠ple they are recog¬≠nis¬≠ing. There are some extremely ded¬≠i¬≠cated and com¬≠mit¬≠ted peo¬≠ple in our local com¬≠mu¬≠nity who give their absolute all to help and sup¬≠port oth¬≠ers take part in the sports they love.

‚ÄúAdd that to the grow¬≠ing group of extremely tal¬≠ented home grown sports men and women, and we have some real local sport¬≠ing heroes in Blackpool.‚ÄĚ

In his role as a Health Ambas¬≠sador for the Fit2Go pro¬≠gramme, Brian works with NHS Black¬≠pool Clin¬≠i¬≠cal Com¬≠mis¬≠sion¬≠ing Group (CCG) to deliver a six week phys¬≠i¬≠cal and healthy lifestyle course to every pri¬≠mary school in Black¬≠pool, tar¬≠get¬≠ing young chil¬≠dren and their families.

He added: ‚ÄúBox¬≠ing is all about being dis¬≠ci¬≠plined. If I can inspire or encour¬≠age a child to suc¬≠ceed then that‚Äôs fantastic.‚ÄĚ
