Sporting hero for a community
IT takes skill and dedication to become a champion in any sporting discipline but a young martial arts expert has more than excelled in a number of disciplines and this has led to his nominations in two Pride of Bucks awards categories this year.
Liam Avis-Bates, from Amersham, has been nominated in for Community Champion,
Alexander Jansons Young Peoples nominee – sponsored by Alexander Jansons Foundation
sponsored by Nunn Hayward and the Alexander Jansons Award for young people aged between 18-25 and sponsored by the Alexander Jansons Foundation.
Nominating Liam, Matt Deprez said: “As well as becoming a seven times champion in three different martial arts, Liam spends his time improving people’s lives in surrounding sports clubs and giving his free time helping out in the local community.
“I really hope he can win a Pride of Bucks award.”
