Tyne pride17 Feb 2012

The Port of Tyne is delighted to be sponsoring this year's Pride of South Tyneside Awards in the Young Performer of the Year category.


2012 celebrates the 10th anniversary of ‘Pride of South Tyneside'. It is the tenth year that the Port of Tyne has supported the awards, which recognises simple acts of kindness, unsung heroes and star talent in South Tyneside.

Andrew Moffat, Port of Tyne, Chief Executive Officer, says: "We are really pleased to be sponsoring the Young Performer category again. The awards celebrate remarkable achievements and outstanding talent, contributing to the community spirit that helps make South Tyneside a great place to live, work and do business.

"The Port of Tyne has supported the awards since the very beginning and we are always astonished by incredible performances. It is clear to see that South Tyneside has a lot to be proud of when you consider previous winners included X Factor champions Joe McElderry and Jade Thirlwall".

The Port of Tyne continued to support the 2010 Young Performer of the Year by backing Little Mix as they progressed in the X Factor last year, and Jade Thirlwall went from winning the Pride of South Tyneside to being one quarter of the winning girl band in the X Factor final.

Last year in addition to the supporting ‘Pride of South Tyneside' and many other awards, the Port of Tyne contributed to a wide variety of organisations in the operating area to support local communities, arts and business.

Nominations for the Young Performer of the Year are welcome from anyone under the age of 21 years with a talent for singing, acting or dancing. For more information, please contact South Tyneside Council or visit
