Mansfield & Worksop Christmas Quiz 2017

Mansfield Quiz 2017

Last night saw our second annual quiz event held at the John Fretwell centre near Mansfield. Many our clients from Mansfield and Worksop were in attendance for a festive evening of quizzing fun!

The overall winning team were Carwood Academicals from Carwood, who beat Green to the Core (Greencore Food To Go) into second place, missing out by half a point!  Congratulations to both teams, who also took 1st and 2nd places last year!

Commiserations to our losers, T2 in Worksop, who took home the wooden spoon!

Thank you to everyone who came along and joined us for another great evening.

Pictured are the winning team collecting their bubbly prizes, together with some of the Ambitions team!

We are also extremely proud to say that we came away from the Lincolnshire Sports Awards 2017 as ‘Active Workplace of the Year’! After winning the title in 2014, we were delighted to learn we had been shortlisted; but recognised we were up against some very tough competition – including two-time winners Rockstar and Siemens.

When our name was announced by Paul Banton, from category sponsors, Ruddocks, we were delighted and extremely surprised!

We are passionate about promoting an active and healthy lifestyle to our employees, and we work hard to keep that momentum going. This starts at the very top of our business; with our Directors cycling from London to Paris in aid of British Heart Foundation. Then from Lincoln 10k to our 8-week walking challenge, which led to many staff creating a ‘WorkWeek Hustle’ step challenge using activity trackers to compete against each other; we’ve had a busy year getting active and we plan to continue!

Thank you to the whole team at Active Lincolnshire for organising another great evening to celebrate the sporting stars of our county, we always come away feeling inspired!

We were proud sponsors once again of the ‘Young Sportswoman of the Year’ Award at this year’s Lincolnshire Sports Awards organised by Active Lincolnshire.

The category is open to females aged under 18, who have displayed an outstanding level of personal achievement at district, county, regional, national or international level.

We choose this award as we feel strongly about recognising and showcasing some of the incredible accolades achieved by young women in the county; who have so much potential to go on to be some of the sporting stars of the future, competing at the highest level in their fields.

This year was no different, with three extremely strong nominees; Georgina Adam (Athletics), Nesta Baxter (Kickboxing) and Darcie Proud (Table Tennis).  All three ladies have impressive CVs so far, having competed nationally and internationally whilst also juggling their studies.

Ambitions Director, Amanda Watson, was there on the night to announce Nesta Baxter as the overall winner.  We wish huge congratulations to Nesta, Georgina and Darcie as they were all very worthy of the prize!
