Apply now for the Barclays Community Sports Award 2011/12
Would you like to recognise the efforts of an unsung hero of grassroots football, while giving your club the chance to win £1,000?
If so, then the Barclays Community Sports Award could be just what you are looking for.
Now in its second season, the monthly award recognises the outstanding achievements of individuals who use sport to benefit communities across the UK.
The accolade is awarded each month during the Barclays Premier League season, to highlight the great efforts being made by many within community sport.
Each monthly winner will receive £1,000 for their group or organisation, a limited edition trophy and will be entered into the end-of-season award to win a further £5,000, all donated by Barclays Spaces for Sports.
The end-of-season award winner will also receive a VIP trip to London to receive their award from Gareth Southgate. The former England international heads up the judging panel for the award, which is a partnership between Barclays Spaces for Sports, the Premier League’s Creating Chances programme and the Football Foundation.
Make a nomination – it could be your club!
This award goes to real people in grassroots community sports clubs across the UK – people like Simon O’Brien-Ellington who won £1,000 for his club Ipswich Charioteers.
The award was recognition of Simon’s work as co-founder, secretary, website administrator and first aider at Suffolk’s only wheelchair football club, whose website is powered by Club Website.
So if your football club has someone like Simon who has recently made a real and lasting difference in their community, then please nominate them.
You never know, it could be their turn to be recognised by the Barclays Community Sports Award and your club’s turn to win £1,000!
