Choices for Disability Sport Awards 2017

Club of the Year SAVI members with Paul & Joanne Marshall

Our annual Choices for Disability Sport Awards were held at Greenbank Sports Academy on 8th July.

Greenbank Sport Development Manager Mark Palmer commented:

“It’s so important to recognise the contribution that all our stakeholders; participants, volunteers, coaches, schools and clubs make to the success of sport development activities at Greenbank Sports Academy.

These awards are about gathering people together, giving recognition and saying thank you to all those involved in a successful year.”
