This category is designed to reward and recognise the best voluntary clubs and organisations in the borough and highlight good practice within them. Previous winners of the award within the rugby fraternity include Ince Rose Bridge ARLFC, Wigan St Judes ARLFC and Parkside Golbourne ARLFC.
Community Development Manager John Winder said:
“It is a great honour for the club to be asked to sponsor this particular award as it gives us the opportunity to offer our support and recognition to some of the fantastic work that is going on in our local communities”.
The awards evening is an annual event which provides an opportunity for members of the voluntary sector to gain some recognition for their outstanding contribution to sport in Wigan. The awards are also designed to celebrate and highlight individual sporting achievements over the last twelve months.
The event will be held on Friday 26th January 2007 at the JJB Stadium and will incorporate a celebration of sporting achievements. The winners of each category will then go on to the Greater Manchester Sports Awards on Friday 23rd March 2007 at Sports City to compete against winners from the other 9 boroughs in Greater Manchester area.
