Bebbington was honoured as the Sports Club Volunteer of the Year, a category in which there were 23 nominations.

Involved as a volunteer in Sutton Dinghy Club for many years, Bebbington is the senior committee boat driver and works tirelessly through the year on a variety of other maintenance activities.

The announcements were made by an independent judging panel.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
