Clubs and sporting organisations up and down the country are going for gold as interest in Miller Homes’ popular Summer of Sport competition begins to pick up pace.
Now in its fourth year, the competition is attracting interest from a variety of sport clubs, all keen to take advantage of the chance to win a fantastic £500 or, for the first time, pick up a top prize of £1,000.
Chris Endsor, Chief Executive of Miller Homes, said: “We have already seen a number of very promising entries for this year’s competition. This is a great chance to win a cash boost for your club, which could provide vital funding for new equipment or kits. It’s not too late to take part, so we would encourage anyone with a connection to a sports team or club to have a go and wish all entrants the very best of luck.”
The award-winning housebuilder is aiming to inspire health and fitness within its communities by encouraging local clubs and organisations to enter.
Competition judges include:
- three-time Olympian archer, Naomi Folkard
- GB triathletes, Tom and David Bishop
- Paralympian gold medal swimmer, Josef Craig
- 11 times British Champion judo player, Sarah Clark
- Preston North End footballer, Chris Humphrey
- Ex footballer of Sheffield Wednesday, Sheffield United and Leeds United, Leigh Bromby
- silver Olympic medallist and diver, Pete Waterfield
The judges will be looking for examples of how the sporting clubs in each community will make the most out of the donation, for details of how it will directly support the learning and fitness of its members and examples of what new equipment and facilities they will be able to buy.
To be in with a chance of winning the cash, entrants have to say in no more than 200 words why their sports club deserves to win, how the money will benefit the club and what it will be spent on.
