Goalball UK has congratulates Synergy Dance for claiming the Diversity and Inclusion Award at the Community Sport and Recreation Awards 2021.

The Diversity and Inclusion Award celebrates clubs and programmes that support underrepresented groups through sport, recreation or physical activity – both before and during the coronavirus pandemic. Goalball UK was one of three finalists alongside Synergy Dance and British Canoeing.

Goalball UK had been nominated for the award due to its commitment to engaging its community of blind and partially sighted members throughout the pandemic and providing a safe return to play for a number of clubs and players.

Prior to the award ceremony last week, Mark Winder, Goalball UK’s CEO had a chat with Active IQ, the sponsor of the award, to discuss the progress the organisation had made over the last 12 months. You can access this below:
