Choices for Disability Sport Awards 2015


Senior of the year – Ummi Spall

Greenbank Sports Academy held its annual awards night on 18th July, to recognise the contribution to disability sports made by a wide range of individuals.
Thanks to funding from The St James’s Place Foundation, the Academy has run a successful Choices for Disability Sports Programme, which increases sporting opportunities across Merseyside, since 2012. The programme now facilitates twenty club sessions in twelve sports across seven days per week.
Greenbank Sport Development Manager Mark Palmer said:
“The success of sport, at grassroots level in particular, relies on the passion of the people who turn up, week in, week out to offer sessions and develop the sport. The Choices Awards are all about saying thank you to those involved with making our disability sports programme happen.”
