Stars of Stick ‘n’ Step Awards in partnership with Simpson Millar

The Stars of Stick ‘n’ Step Awards are an opportunity to recognize, reward and thank our supporters; the people, groups and organisations that go above and beyond contributing their time, energy and donations to Stick ‘n’ Step every year. This event was an evening of celebration to say a huge thank you to our supporters for their hard work, dedication and commitment. We simply couldn’t do it without them.

On Friday 21st May, the Stars of Stick ‘n’ Step Awards was an interactive virtual extravaganza hosted by MC Mark Jones. It was accessible for everyone to take part with the ability to attend from the comfort of their own home. There was interactive bingo, raffles, music from the Merseycats and SingMe Merseyside, the live preview of our new Stick ‘n’ Step videos and of course the announcement of our finalists and winners for our 10 award categories.
