Says Jason Slack at the club “We are very grateful to the organisers and sponsors. For the Hunslet Club to be there in the limelight alongside so many talented sports people in the city of Leeds was a fantastic honour. We were truly proud and humbled to accept this award, it is great piece of recognition for the hard work that our dedicated staff and many volunteers put in to help children and young people achieve their potential in sports at the club. Well done to all of those people, our members, parents and supporters too for making the club what it is. This one is dedicated to all of you.”
