UK Black History Month occurs every year in October and to celebrate the occasion ...
UK Athletics is launching its ‘COACH’ photographic exhibition at an exclusive reception hosted by Grant Thornton UK LLP on Wednesday 25 October.
The ‘COACH’ project led by Donna Fraser, UK Athletics Vice President and Equality, Diversity & Engagement Lead, focuses on the athlete-coach relationship while recognising the contribution of past and present UK Black and Asian athletics coaches from grass roots to elite level. The majority of coaches featured are those who were athletes themselves and are passionate about sharing their experiences and expertise with the emerging athletics stars in the UK, as well as inspiring communities to get involved in athletics in some capacity.
Following the launch event, selected images will displayed for the general public to view in and around the London Borough of Hackney at the Hackney Central Library and Dalston James Library from November 2017 - April 2018 and Loughborough High Performance Centre.
