Kings founder nominated for prestigious European Diversity Award

Kings founder and head coach Jacqueline Scoins-Cass has been shortlisted in the Hero of the Year category in the 2017 European Diversity Awards. Launched six years ago, the European Diversity Awards have become the continent’s most prestigious and widely respected diversity event. The awards recognise individuals and organisations who have made an outstanding contribution to equality, diversity, and inclusion across Europe.

                                                               

Jacqueline states "I was very surprised and honoured to be shortlisted for such a prestigious award, I don't feel that I do anything particularly special. It's nice to be recognised with so many other great people and organisations who do and have done some amazing things."

Since it's establishment in 2004, The Thatcham based Wheelchair Basketball Club with Jacqueline at its helm has endeavored to provide a high-quality wheelchair basketball programme that is accessible to players of all ages and abilities.  the club strives to support, inspire and become a social hub for everyone - believing that by actively encouraging both disabled and able-bodied players, the club can create a fun and engaging atmosphere.
