Malcolm Armstrong, Chair, SASSOT Board said: “There are thousands of people across Staffordshire doing fantastic things to inspire people to lead healthier, fun and active lives, from swimming to boocia, cricket to keep fit.

“We want to recognise those individuals, whether they are coaching future talent, reaching out to less advantaged people, or achieving sporting success of their own – but we need the community to nominate them.”

Nominations will close at 5pm Sunday 30th September 2018.

Good Luck!
