Generous guests raise £4,000 for Journalists’ Charity

The record-breaking SJA British Sports Journalism Awards on March 17 established another record in the Association’s 60-year history: for the amount of money raised on the night for charity, in this case the Journalists’ Charity.

More than £4,000 was raised on the night for a worthy cause, thanks to the generosity of all those attending and our many generous suppliers of prizes, including Frank Warren, Sir Cameron Mackintosh, Thomas Cook Sport, Gaymers Cider and the Barclays Premier League.
