This year, like most things, Cumbria Sports Awards will be a bit different. With very little sport being played this year and tournaments and events being cancelled left, right and centre, we have chosen to do a virtual awards with the emphasis on our Covid heroes from the sporting world who have supported their local community during lockdown.
