Congratulations Mat Power – Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent Shining Light 2014
Nominated by Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent County Sport Partnership, Mat Power is being passed on the baton from 2013 Shining Light John Finney.
Mat has been an outstanding volunteer for Community Games and many other programmes. He is enthusiastic and an inspiration to young people. Sport has brought him through some tough times and he has found solace in volunteering and helping others participate and enjoy themselves.
Commenting on his involvement with Community Games, Mat said: “I got involved because playing sport made me happy and I wanted to try coaching and helping out at events. Community Games has helped me to help people do sports that may not necessarily have the opportunity or motivation to do it.”
