Shropshire’s unsung sporting heroes

Shropshire’s sport and physical activity ‘Oscars’ are back for an 11th year – and the hunt is on for individuals and organisations deserving of recognition. The Energize awards celebrate the achievements of community projects, workplaces, schools, volunteers, clubs and leaders and this year there are new awards, such as the Active Spaces and Places prize and a Local Hero award for a person who gives up their free time to help others – perhaps an instructor, fundraiser, or groundkeeper.

BBC Shropshire is backing the Power of Sport award, which will go to someone who has changed their life by adopting a more active lifestyle, and the William Penny Brookes Trophy will be awarded for dedication over time; Bridgnorth Rugby Club and Anna Overton of Bridgnorth Spartans have been recent winners.
