Active Wandsworth Awards 2018

On Friday 22 February, the Active Wandsworth Awards recognised the commitment and achievement of people across the borough in sport and physical activity. We are delighted to report that Rachel Denning received much deserved recognition for all she does at Ironsides Rugby - winning the Volunteer of the Year Award, while Ironsides old boy Kyle Sinkler triumphed in the Sports Person of the Year category! The success of the club as a whole was also acknowledged: Ironsides Rugby was nominated for Sports Club of the Year.
