Unsung Heroes Award for Karen Davison

Sport Newcastle held its 2021 Awards Evening at the Eagles Basketball Arena this week and our own Karen Davison was one of the guests of honour to receive an Unsung Heroes award.

Karen was very embarrassed as the host, broadcaster Roger Tames, read out a list of her achievements – many years as the organiser for senior and junior badminton in the Morpeth and Ashington areas; £25k raised for local charities through her annual badminton marathons; organiser of No Strings sessions for social and older players; constant support provided for her players throughout the pandemic; team manager for our junior age-group teams; and Assistant Head Coach of our Performance Centre..

As well as Richard, Karen was joined at the evening by her husband Andy and our promising junior, her daughter Ellen, and they were all delighted to finish the evening talking sport with Ian Payne, one of Tyne Tees TV’s main sports reporters.
