Rotherham United Community Sports Trust were honoured to recently receive the High Sheriff Award in recognition of great and valuable services to the community.
Jamie Noble, Head of Community & Carole Foster, NCS & Inclusion Manager were present to collect the award on Saturday evening, at a ceremony where just three groups are recognised each year for the prestigious award.
The High Sheriff gives awards and certificates to acknowledge the contribution made by citizens – to a charity or community and the award comes in the form of a donation to the winning charities.
His year in office particularly focused on inclusion, which is why the RUCST were selected for the prestigious prize. He spoke specifically about our Premier League Kicks project and our BME engagement as well as our support for some of the hardest to reach families within our community.
Jamie Noble, Head of Community said: “We are thrilled to be recognised for this award, everyone at the Trust works tirelessly every day of the week and this only emphasises the work we do to improve the lives of those living in our communities."
