Scholemoor man on television tonight over British Empire Medal
6:00am Monday 19th August 2013 in News
A 28-year-old, who was one of the youngest recipients of a British Empire Medal for his decade-long work to transform derelict land in Bradford into a centre for sports, features in an ITV show tonight.
Matthew Milnes, community sports and activities development worker at Scholemoor Beacon, was named in the 2013 New Year’s Honour's list.
He was involved in a £500,000 project to create a flood-lit multi-use games area, a play area and play facilities at the former Scholemoor Sports Stadium. Mr Milnes found out he had been awarded the medal while filming for an ITV programme.
Called The People’s Medal, that programme is due to be broadcast tonight at 9pm.
