Havering Sports Collective’s Sharon Phillips has beaten off competition from 451 other rivals to win the School Games Organiser of the Year award for 2016.

Youth Sport Trust delivered a conference in Telford last Thursday (November 10) with a number of honours handed out on the day.

Phillips was recognised for her continued commitment and dedication to getting more local youngsters participating and involved in sport.

The one day conference had a range of speakers and offered the chance for attendees to develop their skills and knowledge.

One of the numerous reasons Phillips claimed the Organiser of the Year award is because she has ensured every school within the Borough has participated in at least one competition over the last 12 months.

In addition to the aforementioned, she successfully applied for public healthy money to run a series of Change 4 Life challenge clubs.

This involved a serious of after school clubs run at primary schools targeted at reducing obesity levels and teaching the benefit of healthy and active lifestyles. A sporting community has been created within Havering and across the regional area due to Phillips.

While this continues to improve, it has made huge strides over the last 12 months with 51 primary schools and 18 secondary schools signed up to the Havering Sports Collective scheme, which provides youngsters in the Borough with increased opportunities to participate and compete in sport.

“I’d like to say a massive thank you to all of the Collective staff who underpin everything we deliver in Havering,” Phillips told the official Havering Sports Collective website.

“Having such an inspiration and talented team has made it possible for me to achieve such an accolade. It is an enormous pleasure to work in Havering with so many passionate children, staff and parents and I couldn’t have picked up such recognition without you all.”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
