The 2012 Beyond Sport summit in London concluded with a star-studded award ceremony on 25 July. Tiny Toones was on the shortlist for the UNICEF Sport for Education award and KK (Tiny Toones founder), Hannah Stevens (board member) and Richard England (supporter) were in attendance as luminaries including Tony Blair, David Beckham and Muhammed Ali presented awards to those who have used sport to change lives the world over.
We were disappointed not to win but honoured to have been one of only three projects shortlisted and our congratulations go to the worthy winners Sports for Education, Education for the Future from Romania. Our thanks go to Beyond Sport for the opportunity to attend the summit and meet and share ideas with so many inspiring organisations and individuals. We are also grateful to ASE consulting for assisting with the costs involved in visiting London in the midst of Olympic fever.
By far and away our biggest thanks go to everyone who took the time to post supportive comments on the Beyond Sport website. We were touched by the love for Tiny Toones that is out there; it really is an inspiration. We’ll be back and aiming for gold at the 2013 awards!
