STOCKPORT youth sports coach Sasha Moore has won a national award for her work in the community.

Sasha, who works for Life Leisure, runs the ParkLives and R Time projects, delivering fun and engaging activity sessions for local children.

The free-to-attend sessions attract around 100 young people from Stockport who can choose from a range of sports and activities and access coaching and equipment needed.

Sasha was named Children and Young People Coach of the Year at the UK Coaching Awards. She also won Coach of the Year at the StreetGames National Awards from the charity which supports the sessions.

She has seen more than 500 children attend her sessions, which use inventive ways for young people to engage with sport.

Sasha, left of picutre receiving her award, is a keen gymnast and previously competed alongside Team GB in the European School Games. She said: “I feel very honoured. I love doing my job and the response from the kids and their families makes it all worthwhile.”
