Experts in design, repro and photopolymer plates they supply a full design service to their many clients. Whether it’s a single idea or a full comprehensive range of product designs, Qualiflex always has the customer in mind striving to build long lasting partnerships and relationships. 

Keen to support local communities they have come on board as the category sponsor of the ‘Junior Sportswoman of the Year’ award. This award will celebrate the region’s very best junior sportswoman who competes at an amateur level. A way to recognise success on a grassroots level, this category is open to girls up to the age of 13.  

Charles Robey is the Director at Qualiflex and he highlighted why they made the decision to become a category sponsor. 

The Qualiflex Group has a long-standing association in the local sporting community,” he said.   

We are proud to sponsor Toton United Football Club and values the great work, dedication and how sport can bring communities together. We are pleased to have the opportunity to sponsor a sporting award that recognises sporting talent, in all ages and in all categories. 

There are many parallels between achieving success in the world of sport and business with Charles pointing out the main similarities. 

To be successful in any sport whether it be an individual or a team game, you have to be driven, positive, be a team player, be passionate, don't let other people be a blocker of your dreams,” he said.  

Know what you want to achieve and where you want to get too. Always remember your roots, be grounded and listen to advice that is given. 

The awards will place at the home of one of Leicester’s most famous sporting teams. The Leicester Tigers are the most successful rugby union team in the country and it is at their Welford Road home where the awards will take place. 

On Thursday 16 January the ceremony will take place as some of the most high-profile sporting personalities from the region and beyond are celebrated. People of all ages and ability will be in attendance as individuals, teams and clubs are recognised and heralded for the impact they have made.     

The night will also see money raised for charity with Rainbows Hospice and Children acting as the official charity partner of the event.  

The hospice provides vital care to children suffering from life-limiting and life-threatening conditions with a game of stand-up bingo and silent auction taking place to raise funds for the organisation.
