At a star-studded event at the Hilton Hotel in Glasgow on Saturday 3rd November, Team East Lothian AC was presented with the scottishathletics FPSG Impact Club of the Year Award. The award recognises the huge amount of work and commitment that athletes, coaches, team managers, officials, volunteers, trustees, sponsors and partners have made in advancing the Team East Lothian goal of Inspiring, Engaging and Supporting the whole East Lothian Community to improve health and wellbeing through athletics.
As a relatively young club, our 5-stage, 5-event group, performance athlete pathway is now really delivering results and remains the core focus for the club. Team East Lothian athletes are competing and making a real impact with great performances and podium visits at local, county, regional, national and international levels. Real teamwork, delivering real results, and providing a real inspiration to help improve health and wellbeing across the community. We’re now making a real impact on the whole East Lothian community with programmes underway for people of all ages and abilities, enabling them to get involved as athletes, coaches, officials, team managers and volunteers. We’re helping people to improve their health and wellbeing and we’re making a difference. And with some major projects still in development, we’ve got lots more to do.
