The North East and Cumbria Sports Awards took place earlier in the year on the 19th January at the University of Sunderland Cityspace building. This annual event recognises contributions across various elements of sport including volunteers, coaches, teams and elite performers.

The BBC’s Jeff Brown and Dianne Youdale presented the awards to an audience of 400 guests. Durham Amateur Rowing Club (DARC), Martin Tyler and Barry Hudson were jointly
awarded the ‘Sporting Inspiration Award’. This award recognises excellent service, support and dedication in the
delivery of community sport opportunities.

At the end of 2010, DARC also proudly won Club of the Year (Durham and Chester-le-Street area), Martin Tyler won Coach of the Year and Barry Hudson won the Contribution to Sport Award.

DARC hope to continue their success throughout 2011.
