SP Energy Networks Community Hero Award to be awarded in memory of Jim Taylor MBE
Official Community Partner SP Energy Networks wish to once again recognise someone who goes above and beyond in their local community.
The SP Energy Networks Community Hero Award in memory of Jim Taylor MBE is now open for nominations. Jim Taylor MBE worked with the club for more than 12 years building up its Business Club portfolio, as well as playing a key role in introducing international players to the city. Jim sadly passed away last year and, as a keen champion of grassroots rugby, will be remembered by this award.
Anyone can put forward their own Community Hero for recognition before the deadline (Tuesday 21 March 2023) All nominations will be judged by representatives from Glasgow Warriors, with the winner will be announced at this year’s Annual Awards Dinner, sponsored by The Malcolm Group on 23rd April at Hilton Glasgow on William Street.
Nominees must represent a rugby club the Glasgow Warriors catchment area to be eligible for the award; this can be as a coach, a player, a volunteer, a member or a specific team within the wider club. The Glasgow Warriors catchment area includes all clubs and teams in the Glasgow, Lanarkshire, Dumfries & Galloway, Ayrshire and Caledonia regions.
Anyone who nominates their chosen hero and will be asked to provide a short explanation on their reasons for nominating their chosen champion, highlighting the efforts and difference they have made within their local community. This can include anything from keeping in touch with those at risk of social isolation to running keep-fit classes for young children, or from establishing a new initiative to volunteering with a local organisation. Their work doesn’t have to be confined to rugby, either – if they’ve made a difference, we want to hear about it.
Nominations are now open for the SP Energy Networks Community Hero Award in Memory of Jim Taylor MBE until the Tuesday 21 March 2023. Nominations can be made here.
