The climax to Fiat Auto (UK)'s participation in the recent Sunday Times Sportswomen of the Year awards came with a presentation to Sharon Davies, who received the PE Teacher of the Year award from Fiat UK's chief executive, Richard Gadeselli, at a ceremony in central London last week.
Sharon, from Gellifore Primary School in Denbighshire, runs the football and netball leagues for Vale of Clwyd Schools, the annual swimming gala, sports days for her school, the Urdd netball, athletics and tennis clubs, and trains the cross-country team. Her boundless enthusiasm is a constant inspiration to her pupils.
Commenting on Fiat Auto (UK)'s association with the awards, marketing director Franck Ropert remarks: "We are delighted to see that women in sport are getting the recognition they rightly deserve; and we are particularly pleased that Sharon's tireless work with children has been recognised by this prestigious event."
Fiat Auto (UK)'s involvement in Sportswomen of the Year is in line with the company's creation of and support for young people's educational programmes, which was recognised officially at the Prince Michael International Road Safety Awards last week, and also marked by Fiat Auto (UK)'s recent announcement of an agreement with Legoland Windsor, to promote road safety to children.
The title of Sportswoman of the Year went to long distance runner Paula Radcliffe, who recently broke the world record in the Chicago Marathon.Published 14 December 2002
