We were nominated by Richard Bigden from NPA Insurance Broking Group, whose son Dan plays for the under 11's.
In the first instance we needed to explain what we have been doing within our community. This included showing a homemade video to support this. We were then invited to the awards day which guaranteed us £1000 with the possibility of winning up to £15,000.
On the 19/04/12 the Famous Five (Richard, David, Jimmy, Inder and Laurence) went up to Leeds with a spring in their steps dreaming of what they could do if they won. They experienced a very enjoyable day with much food and drink.
When the Awards started we knew we had tough competition in our group with a
'disabled Athletic Club' looking the strongest. As we thought, they were the eventual winners and we wish them all the best with their winnings and hope they continue doing a great job.
The Club would like to thank Richard and NPA Insurance Broking Group for nominating us and AVIVA for awarding us £1000 which we will be putting towards maintaining our pitches.
