Community scheme up for two awardsMorecambe Community Sports have been selected as finalists in two categories of the Northwest Football Awards 2014.
In the ‘Community Initiative of the Year’ category, Morecambe Community Sports has been chosen for its highly successful ‘Gymstars’ project. The scheme involves taking a mobile gym into schools to provide children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 with the opportunity to become more physically active and helps introduce a healthy, active lifestyle. The programme has enabled children across the district to improve their cardiovascular fitness, balance and co-ordination, whilst having fun in a safe, supervised environment.
Morecambe Community Sports have also been selected as finalists in the ‘Community Club of the Year’ category. This recognises the range of work undertaken within the local community supporting education, health, social inclusion and sports participation.
Janet Preston of Morecambe Community Sports said, “We are delighted to be shortlisted in two categories. To be recognised alongside the best from across the leagues shows the quality of the work that we deliver and how we continue to develop for the benefit of the community.”
The prestigious awards ceremony takes place at The Point at Lancashire County Cricket Club (LCCC) on Tuesday 18th November.
