Stream - Best LEAP Company 2016

At the LEAP Annual Awards last night 17 trophies were handed out to the Wiinners of the various LEAP Competitions.  All the Companies were brilliant this year but at the end it was almost neck and neck for two Companies in the Competition "Best Overall LEAP Company 2016".  

The decision was extremely close between Stream and DrinCup who had both won, or been placed, in all the major Competitions.
