‘Enjoy’ achievements

Community matters

Congratulations and thank you to Footprints in the Community, who won the Voluntary and Charity Award for their work to tackle isolation and poverty.

Hats off to Gemma Sands, winner of the ‘Mo Mowlam Award’ at the ‘Inspiring Women Awards’. It is richly deserved!

Julie Donaldson scooped up an award at the Community Radio Awards for her Morning Mix Show on Zetland FM. We’re sure Julie will keep us all dancing around the kitchen for many years to come!

These awards are just confirming what we already knew – Redcar and Cleveland has serious talent:

  • Dave Cocks won a stay at Gisborough Hall Hotel with his beautiful photo entry to our ‘What Makes Redcar and Cleveland Unique?’ Competition.
  • Rayven Skye Masters beat out the rest to win ‘Redcar & Cleveland’s Got Talent’.
  • Finally, ‘The Mighty Redcar’ received a BAFTA nomination for ‘Photography: Factual’. Dan Dewsbury, the show’s director, fell in love with the town, commenting that ‘the pride the people have in this place is something to be treasured’.

Our Sporting Triumphs

When it comes to sport, Redcar and Cleveland never miss! The many awards won recently show just a fraction of all the work put in:

  • It was a great year for Grangetown Netball at the Gazette Sports Awards! Geraldine Williams was nominated for ‘Coach or Mentor of the Year’, while the under-16 team won ‘Junior Team of the Year’.
  • Stephen Berry, track manager at Redcar Racecourse, was a finalist at the same awards.
  • Redcar Racecourse took pole position when the Racegoers Club awarded it ‘Best Small Racecourse in the North and Scotland’.
  • The Redcar Bears sped past the competition and scooped up the Championship KO Cup in front of a roaring crowd.
  • In Netball, Alexandra Flint earned a place in the highly competitive U13 Manchester Thunder Youth Academy.
  • Congratulations to Carole Jennison, Mica Hoare and Sean Jewitt, who all won medals at the Special Olympics.
  • Finally, proud Redcar | Cleveland Ambassador Glen ‘Duzza’ Durrant won his third BDO Darts World Title last January. He followed it up with the PDC title in May, after beating world number one Michael van Gerwen. Congratulations!


Congratulations to the Steel Stories Exhibition at Kirkleatham Museum, who won a ‘Museums Change Lives’ award. The exhibition is a product of lots of hard work and shines a light on our area’s industrial heritage. If you haven’t been, make sure to check it out!

We have to mention the Festival of Thrift: on the shortlist for the ‘Performance of the Year’ award in the Living North Awards 2019. The Festival showcased some of our talented performers, businesses and artists while saving the world in the process!
