We've kicked off 2016 by celebrating with the good and the great with The Channel Islands Sports Awards.

Organised by our very own Suzanne Pontin, the event is broadcast live by ITV Channel Television and recognises local sports personalities and their achievements.

We also contributed with the idea of a Tweet Wall to get guests engaged on the night, posting questions for main speaker,  Jacqui Oatley MBE, and encouraging guests to post their #CISPOTY photos to generate some excitement around the evening.

We were proud to sponsor the Team of the Year Award and our Tom got to say a few words and present Jersey's netball team, Team Jets with their winning bursary and trophy. It was a fantastic evening, enjoyed by all!

Congratulations to all those who were nominated and the winners - we look forward to next year’s event at Hotel de France in Jersey! Here's a few photos from the event from photographer, Mark Fox.
