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.
Who can I nominate?
If you know an individual, a group, school, club or team who deserves recognition for something they have done, we want to hear all about it! The reasons why you may nominate someone as an activity champion are endless but just to help but in no way limit what about;
A sports club;
- A local club that has been innovative in the way that they have reacted to the crisis. Fundraising for a chosen cause, re-purposing themselves, accessing grants to allow them to undertake new projects, using technology in new ways (like creating exercise/challenge videos) to engage with their audience, or taking action to keep members active and connected.
- That has taken part in the school games virtual summer championships, or creatively and inclusively supported its users helping them to stay well.
- Someone who has motivated themselves or others to get active, stay active, or step it up to another level.
And anything else that you have seen that has inspired, motivated, energised or influenced one person, a small group or a large group of people in the Melton Borough to remain physically active and mentally well.
*Please remember to be an activity champion people/groups nominated must live, work and/or operate in the Melton Borough.
