UNSUNG SPORTING HEROES CALLED TO THE FORE

2 Apr 2008

The Welsh Sports Association (WSA) is seeking nominations for its annual Unsung Hero Award, to be presented at the Welsh Sports Hall of Fame dinner being held at City Hall Cardiff on Friday 16 May 2008.

Sports Clubs

The WSA is the umbrella body for the national governing bodies of sport and physical recreation in Wales, providing an advocacy, advisory, consultancy and training role for its constituent members. It is the voice of voluntary sector sport in Wales and strives to promote the excellent work undertaken on a daily basis by the thousands of volunteers who give up their time so freely for the furtherance of sport across the principality.

Many of those individuals involved have dedicated a lifetime of service to their chosen sport, and beyond their local club set-up, and their outstanding efforts can go largely unnoticed. The Association’s Unsung Hero Award presents an opportunity to reward the efforts of one such volunteer as part of one of Wales’s most glittering sporting occasions.

Nominations are open to all national governing bodies of sport and physical recreation and their member clubs and associations and the closing date for applications is Friday 18 April 2008. Application forms are available from the Welsh Sports Association website www.welshsports.org.uk or by contacting Greta Gueresi-Leach on or .
