Cornwall Sports Partnership value the work of volunteers in Sport
In order to recognise the dedicated and committed volunteers that make sport happen Cornwall Sports Partnership has launched the 2015 Cornwall Sports Awards as well as their new Sports Volunteer of the Month programme.
Do you know an invaluable volunteer, coach, instructor, official or club member who goes above and beyond to make sport happen? Show your appreciation by nominating them in the 2015 Cornwall Sports Awards or as one of our volunteers of the month.
These two exciting programmes has been designed to recognise and reward the contributions made by dedicated sports Coaches, Instructors, Officials, Clubs, Volunteers and Young Leaders from across the county.
The Awards are separated into four categories and incorporate 14 separate Awards, including Club of the Year, Children's Coach of the Year and Lifetime Services to Sport.
Michael Kent - Performance & Development Coach of the Year from the 2014 Cornwall Sports Awards said ' To receive recognition for all the hard work me and my fellow colleagues have put in and the support I have received from my committee in bringing the club and myself to this point is unbelievable. A very delightful evening with like-minded people and a joyous atmosphere celebrating all sports with my fellow peers. A tremendous event which should inspire everyone to nominate someone next year!'.
The first volunteer of the month for June is Andy Moore from Hayle Runners and Chair of the Duchy Athletics Network. Nominations are open for the July volunteer of the month and all nominees will be entered into the 2015 Cornwall Sports Awards.
"This is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the achievements of our volunteers that make sport and physical activity happen throughout the county whether it be as our volunteer of the month or through our the prestigious annual sports awards " said Natasha Howard from the Cornwall Sports Partnership.
She continued "anyone can nominate so please don't be shy and it's time to recognise and reward that groundsman, official or coach that goes beyond the call of the duty to make your club, association or organisation tick over day to day"
The closing date for nominations for the awards is Monday 7th September 2015 and each volunteer of the month closes at the end of that month so get voting!
