On Friday 17th March, Aberdeenshire Sports Council held their annual awards evening at Garioch Sports Centre in Inverurie.

The event was attended by over 300 sports men and women.  This year’s guest speaker Susan Eaglestaff (London 2012 Olympic Badminton Player) delivered a great question and answer session inspiring the next generation of athletes.

The following athletes with a disability were recognised at the awards:

  • Murray Eunson for the sport of swimming
  • Sarah Hawkin and Euan Thoirs for the sport of wheelchair basketball
  • and Grant Wilson for his work with the Grampian Flyers wheelchair basketball team.

The overall Disability Sport Award went to Euan Thoirs. A very proud evening for him, his team and his family who were all in attendance to celebrate with him.
