JAMIE Boswell is a shining example of what a difference one person can make.

Mr Boswell set up an after-school football club at St Joseph’s Catholic School in Worcester two years ago because there was nothing on offer.

Thanks to him, and the time he gives up to coach the children and organise matches, the school now has an under 9s football club, an under 11s club and a girls’ football club.

It doesn’t stop there though.

It was his efforts that inspired others to look at what else could be offered to the children.

His volunteer work has helped motivate others, with staff members following his lead to develop PE and create sporting groups, including archery, cookery, netball, karate and outdoor adventures.

It is this transformation - only possible because of Jamie’s efforts - that have seen him awarded winner of the Fit for Life award.

Many of the children themselves nominated Mr Boswell saying how much the enjoyed the clubs and how grateful they were he gave up his time to run their clubs.

At the event, Jamie Boswell, said: “I am very humbled and honoured. The children have actually done this for me.”

Mr Boswell said he decided to start the football club after his daughter wanted to play football.

He said: “There was nothing at school for her.

“The first week we had 15 children and the second week I had 45. It’s been running for more than three years now and it’s just grown and grown.”

The runners up were Andy Taynton, from Pershore High School, and Women on Wheels.

Mr Taynton joined the school as its catering manager more than ten years ago and has been credited with completely transforming nutrition for staff and students.

Women on Wheels was set up to encourage women to get on their bikes and now has a community of more than 900 people with 600 Worcestershire women joining its rides since it was set up in 2012.
