Galashiels-based GB Technologies has committed to becoming the headline sponsor of Borders Sport and Leisure’s Celebration of Sport Awards for the fourth consecutive year.

The leading voice and data solutions business has been a strong supporter of the awards scheme since its launch.

Gordon Brown from GB Technologies added: “These awards recognise excellence and reward those who strive to meet their goals.

“There are many parallels between sport and business and as a company committed to growing and prospering in the Borders we are honoured to be able to continue to play a part in showing our appreciation of our region’s sporting heroes.

“From a personal perspective, involvement in sport has played an ongoing part in my life, as a swimmer, rugby player and now a keen cyclist. I believe that participating in sport not only keeps you fit and healthy but also helps to engender a positive attitude which can assist you through all of life’s challenges and help lead towards success.”

The 2016 Celebration of Sport Awards ceremony will take place next March and The Southern Reporter will announce details of the categories and nominees in the coming months. Any businesses interested in sponsorship opportunities relating to the awards should contact Emily McGowan at Borders Sport and Leisure on 01896 661166.
