IF you know a coach who goes the extra mile and is a great help to others then you can nominate them for a Local Coach and Volunteer Award.

The honours are being organised by East Dunbartonshire Leisure and Culture Trust, in partnership with sportscotland.

There are a number of different categories. All nominees must hold a recognised governing body of sport coaching qualification.

Leisure Trust chairwoman, Councillor Amanda Stewart, will present the awards at a ceremony in Tom Johnston House in October.

She said: “Many coaches give up their free time to share their skills and develop the talents of others within the community. It takes a great deal of commitment and at the trust we wanted to reward those who do so much to enhance the sporting experience of those they coach.

“If you have a coach in mind who you think is outstanding, please take the time to nominate him or her.”

For a form contact Stuart Alexander on 0141 578 8459/ or ask for one at your local leisure centre. The deadline is September 23.
