Everyone Active, Brio and GLL among big winners at largest ever ukactive Awards

Leisure operators Everyone Active and GLL each picked up three gongs at the ukactive Awards last night, held as part of the Active Uprising event at Manchester Central.

More than 800 guest attended the awards ceremony, which saw Brio Leisure win the hotly contested Organisation of the Year Award.
