Melton Active Champions

Nominating your 'Melton Active Champion' is a way of celebrating and recognising people within our communities that have been motivating, inspiring and making it possible for us to keep physically active and healthy before and during the coronavirus pandemic.

So much great work has taken place, and we all know the power of sport and physical activity to promote physical and mental wellbeing, so together let's share and shout about what has been happening as we approach a whole year of living with COVID-19.

When can we nominate and how will people be recognised?

Nominations will start on Monday 14th December 2020 until Sunday 31st January 2021. Nominate your active champions throughout this time using our simple online form below.

After nominations close on Sunday 31st January (10pm), we will be sharing a selection of our Melton Active Champion stories and successes over the next two weeks on our social media channels (@MeltonSportHA). Three nominees will be selected at random to receive a £20 Amazon Voucher or £20 Melton Sports Voucher, and this will be announced on Monday 15th February LIVE on our Facebook Page.
