Lateef Iqbal, store director at Specsavers in Farnham, was honoured to attend this year's Farnham Sports Awards held at the Farnham Rugby Club. Specsavers is a key sponsor of the event and Lateef was invited along to the celebrations to present an award.
Celebrating great achievements in sport
The awards evening, organised by The Farnham Sports Council (FSC), celebrates sporting ambassadors of all ages and all disabilities, and the evening was a great opportunity to meet such 'greats' all in the one venue.
Part of Surrey's drive to support sport
The Local Sports Awards are part of a Surrey Council inititiative that runs across all boroughs and districts across Surrey to recognise and celebrate the wealth of local sporting talent and success over the last 12 months. All nominations are assessed and whittled down to a short-list who are then invited to their local award ceremonies to find out if they have won.
A word from the store director
Lateef Iqbal: 'It was a pleasure to be invited and award Keith with his accolade. Across Surrey, Specsavers has been really progressive with its support of sport - we are a sponsor of the Surrey Youth Games and the Surrey FA - and it is always a delight to be in the presence of such talent.
'These awards are important as they recognise the successes individuals have at a grassroots level in their own local community and it was a real honour to attend.'
