Palmer scoops top community award

30 October 2015

Owls star Liam Palmer has scooped a top accolade to award his ongoing support and commitment to the Sheffield Wednesday Community Programme and his work in the community.

Liam, who is currently the longest serving Owls player and has also supported the club all his life, has been awarded by Sheffield Wednesday for his outstanding work in the community and has picked up the SWFC Community Player of the Year for last season

At the beginning of the 2014/15 season Liam became an ambassador for leading cancer charity, Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity. The Owls player has shown his support for the charity via social media, met patients and taken part in promoting competitions himself.

For the second season, Liam has become the ambassador for the National Citizen Service (NCS) alongside club captain Glenn Loovens and has seen him attend their graduation events and meet students on the programme.

Liam said: “Thank you to everyone at the Community Programme for giving me this award. All the work the Community Programme do is second to none. From the work the programme does with Soccer Camps to the various initiatives they’re involved in.

“It really is a pleasure to get involved in and see the happiness you bring to the kids and the community first hand.”

Congratulations, Liam. Keep up the good work!
