Trevor's nomination story
Trevor Burchick MBE is an inspiration to all, having been awarded the MBE and awards for his voluntary services to the communities across Greater Manchester, Trevor is well known for his creative PrideGames and in being a leading voice for community groups in chasing out hate crime and homophobia from sports by encouraging more lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people to take part in over thirty different sports. Pridesports has blossomed to become a beacon of hope for many, promoting equality of opportunity into sport not only for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community but as an encouragement for the wider community that inspires all socially excluded people to see how taking action can bring about inclusion. Trevor achieved in ten years a defining respect, trust and admiration that ensures everyone, regardless of culture, age, disability, sexuality, economic or diversity factor is able to have the right to participate. In being a Torchbearer Trevor would not be running alone as on his shoulders will be all those groups, individuals, ideas and dreams he represents.
