The Vitality Grassroots Sportswoman of the year award is for individuals who have actively engaged with different groups of people within their community through sport.
Jacqueline’s award is up for a public vote.
Jacqueline stated “It’s amazing to be shortlisted for such an amazing national award, I don’t feel that I do anything particularly special, I just volunteering my time to continue to provide the opportunity for people to participate in wheelchair basketball 15 years on from founding the club. It’s changed my life and those who have been part of the club over its 15-year history – There are also some amazing people who have been shortlisted for this award and each one so deserves to win this award”
