Newton Abbot College’s Sports Awards Evening has received a generous donation from LV= insurance company. This annual event takes place at the end of each academic year and enables the PE department to celebrate the students’ sporting and physical achievements over the past year.
This is a prestigious event which sees over 500 students, parents, guardians and members of staff attend to celebrate the students’ success. In order to hold this event the College relies on sponsorship and donations from businesses in and around the local community.
This year employees from LV= in Exeter have kindly donated £250 towards this event and, as a result, will be the main sponsors for the ‘Sportsperson of the Year’ award.

Ian Patchett, Teacher of PE, said “It is great that such a large national company can be involved with a much smaller, local event such as this. Their donation really will go a long way to help celebrate the outstanding achievements of our students and ensure that they are rewarded for their hard efforts. A big thanks must go to LV= for this.”
Samantha Preece, Corporate Social Responsibility Manager, LV= said “As a major employer in Exeter, I’m delighted that we’ve been able lend our support to these awards, especially as they recognise the positive achievements of young people from the local area.”
