The Argus
Tony Bloom and Paul Barber with Albion's Contribution to Sussex Sport award.

Brighton & Hove Albion celebrated more success after winning in the Contribution to Sussex Sport category at The Argus Community Stars Awards, held at The Dome on Sunday.
Chairman Tony Bloom and chief executive Paul Barber collected the award on behalf of everyone working at the club, while Albion in the Community were also nominated in the Charity of the Year category.
Barber said, “The chairman and I were very honoured to collect the award on behalf of everyone at both the club and AITC, who worked so hard to secure our promotion to the Premier League last year.
“This award is testament to everyone who supported Chris and the team, and we are delighted to be recognised by the Argus for our contribution to the Sussex community.
“It was a brilliant event, and it was a privilege to be alongside other worthy people and organisations who give so much to our county.”
The Argus editor Aaron Hendy added, “It was such a fantastic event. We celebrated the achievements and efforts from people across the county, from community stalwarts, volunteers and fundraisers to parents and grandparents who go the extra mile.
“But of course this celebration of the success stories of 2017 would not have been complete without recognising the great boost that the Seagulls gave to us all.
“And it was fantastic for Tony Bloom to say what a great team achievement promotion to the Premier League has been.
“It really has given the whole city and county such a huge lift, from the excitement of the sporting results to the economic boost and joy we have all felt.
“Congratulations and thank you to the Seagulls on a very well-deserved award.”
