Congratulations to our Choices for Disability Sport team on winning Merseyside Sports Partnership’s ‘Community Sports Project of the Year’ at the Sporting Champions Dinner held at Liverpool’s Britannia Adelphi on 27th November. This follows the success of the team in the Pride of Merseyside awards in September, where they won the Sports Team Award for 2015.

The Community Sports Project of the Year accolade was given by Merseyside Sports Partnership, in recognition of the work that Choices does to encourage disabled people of all ages to get involved with a range of sports through clubs, events and activities offered at Greenbank Sports Academy and community locations.

Sport Development Manager Mark Palmer said:

“We are delighted to get recognition for what we do – everyone in the team is really passionate about sport and the benefits that involvement can offer for disabled people, so it’s good when people say that we are doing a good job.

Winning the Community Project of the Year award will hopefully help more people to find out about the activities we offer and ultimately bring more disabled people through the door to take part.

Thanks and congratulations to everyone who makes Choices possible, especially our funders; The St James’s Place Foundation, Sport England, Children in Need, Postcode Community Trust and Halton and Knowsley Borough Councils.”
