Who is your Worcester Sporting Hero?

Do you know a Worcester individual or team who has shown great dedication or excelled in sport over the last year? Now’s the time to help them get the recognition they deserve.

Nominations are open for the 2013 City of Worcester Sport Awards – your chance to make sure the people who are keeping the Olympic legacy alive in the Faithful City are rewarded for their work and dedication.

Whether it’s a team, a coach, a volunteer or a single sportsman or sportswoman who you think deserves an honour, there’s a category for them all in these prestigious annual awards.

And the winner of the Unsung Hero Award at County level will have the opportunity to progress up to the National BBC Sport Personality of the Year Awards.

Worcester City Council and Sport Worcester jointly run the awards, and last year’s ceremony attracted big names in the shape of Olympic medallist Zac Purchase and Paralympic medallist Mel Clarke.

Cllr Jabba Riaz, Cabinet member for Safer and Stronger Communities, said: “Worcester really embraced the Olympic spirit last year and since then many local people have been working night and day to keep the flame alive. This is their chance to be hailed as the community heroes they are.”

The Awards ceremony will be held on 18 September, with the winner of each award receiving a trophy. The winners will then be put forward for an award at the Herefordshire & Worcestershire County Sports Partnership Awards Ceremony.

To make your nomination, download the form from www.sportworcester.org.uk or call 01905 722331.

Please complete and return the forms by the deadline of
Friday 30 August 2013 to: FAO Sport Worcester, Sports Development, Orchard House, Farrier Street, Worcester, WR1 3BB or email
sportsdevelopment@worcester.gov.uk with the subject title Sports Awards.
A shortlist will be drawn up and finalists will be selected for each award.
