April 1, 2014 – Newham All Star Sports Academy (NASSA) has been shortlisted for its partnership work with Tate & Lyle Sugars in the Business Charity Awards 2014.
We have been shortlisted in the Community Partnership Award category for our work with Tate & Lyle Sugars on our Carry A Basketball Not A Blade (CABNAB) initiative.
Tate & Lyle Sugars have supported NASSA since 2008, offering direct on-going help through financial commitment, as well as administrative, volunteering and strategic support.
Tate & Lyle Sugars President Ian Bacon played on the NASSA All-Stars team at the 2013 CABNAB Fifth Anniversary event, while the Company’s Thames Refinery is the host venue for the Newham Junior Citizens programme at which NASSA delivers a CABNAB workshop to 3,000 local primary schoolchildren each year.
