Keynsham Town Juniors  received the Chairman’s Special Award at B&NES Council Chairman’s Sports Awards 2013, which celebrate local sportspeople, volunteers and coaches.

The club was honoured for its work in the community, including free coaching sessions for youngsters involved with autism support charity Butterflies-Haven and free after-school coaching for local children.

The club also encourages children to develop as players and then as coaches and referees to share their skills with the next generation.

A club spokesperson said: “It’s great to know that the contribution we are all making to the lives of our young players and their families is recognised.”

Another Keynsham winner was Mike Oram, from Keynsham Swimming Club, who was named Young Volunteer in Sport.

Paralympic swimmer Stephanie Millward attended the event  at the Guildhall in Bath on February 27 to present the awards.
