Award: Giving Back Through Volunteering Award
Winner: Tony Barclay Location: Northern Ireland
Since joining Sported’s volunteer team in 2018, Tony’s support and commitment to Sported members has been outstanding. Without Tony’s support, groups like Fit Moms & Kids would not survive. Beyond supporting in a professional capacity, Tony has inspired the group and shown us that kindness has no limit. As Tony himself is registered blind, he also helped shape the knowledge of Sported staff, volunteers and members for our Include project.
