Direct from the red carpet at the Laureus Sports Awards!
Blog by Joe Taylor, Wave Project founder:
The Laureus World Sports Awards are one of the premier annual events in the sporting calendar; so it was a huge honour to represent The Wave Project at the event in Monaco last week. Hosted by actor James Marsden, the awards recognised some of the most important moments in sport over the past year.
Amongst the VIP guests were household names like Novak Djokovic, Arsène Wenger and Boris Becker, as well as Cesc Fàbregas, surfing legend Steph Gilmore and skateboarder Tony Hawk.
I was joined at the event by one of our surf therapy mentors, Issy Massey, who volunteers at our South Devon project. We were also joined by three other amazing Sport for Good charities who are funded by Laureus; The Change Foundation, Carneys Community and The Track Academy. Also on our table were a team from Mercedes who looked after us throughout the evening – and very lovely they were too!
