Newton Abbot Racecourse Proud to Sponsor the Herald Express Pride of South Devon Awards

We’re proud to announce that we are headline sponsor for this year’s Pride of South Devon Awards.

The awards look to both recognise and celebrate those who make a positive difference to South Devon. Open to all ages, the awards will honour unsung heroes who have committed a selfless act of bravery, overcome the impossible or have committed time to caring for others.

Patrick Masterson, our Managing Director, said: “We are delighted to be sponsoring the Pride of South Devon awards honoring outstanding individuals and groups who have gone above and beyond to help others.

“As a business based in South Devon which is greatly supported by the local community, we feel it is important to give something back to the community that we operate in.

“So many people work tirelessly without recognition to support a worthy cause or to make a difference to the lives of their community. This is our opportunity to say a big thank you and show that their work is very much appreciated.”
