|In keeping with our Volunteers’ Week celebrations, we are delighted to announce that the 12 Sported volunteer mentors to be nominated for the Vanessa Brown Volunteer Award 2015 are:
- Amanda McDonald – West Midlands
- Anas Hassan – London
- Clive Barnard – Wales
- Derek May – North West
- Frank McGlone – Northern Ireland
- John Horton – South East
- Maggie Pankhurst – East Midlands
- Martin Briggs – South West
- Martin Corck – East
- Neil Rutherford – Scotland
- Peter Lodge – Yorkshire & Humberside
- Sue Martin – North East
The award was launched this year to celebrate the life of Vanessa Brown – a much loved Sported staff member and friend – who sadly passed away a year ago today.
The annual award recognises the outstanding contribution made by Sported’s volunteer mentors to the growth and development of our 3,000-plus members. Each of our 12 Regional and National Managers had the very difficult task of narrowing down and nominating just one volunteer from their respective region to be shortlisted for this year’s award.
