Founder of the Preston City Trampoline Club and head coach Colin Robson won an award at the Lancashire Sports Awards.
In a glitzy bash at the Hilton Blackpool he accepted the Service to Disability Award.
He said: “I feel very humbled to have won an award for the second year running at the Sports Awards but it really is a team effort. I’m lucky enough to spend my days in “retirement” volunteering in a role I love with a great bunch of people.”
The trampoline club has been running a number of sessions for people with learning disability to learn to bounce.
Christine Anderson, deputy manager at the club, said: “As a first time attendee I have been blown away by the atmosphere and excitement of the evening. We couldn’t be prouder of Colin, the work he does and the way he inspires us all.”
Club manager Fiona Robson said: “We believe that anyone can trampoline whatever their ability. Many people with a disability do not access any type of sports provision. We encourage people to come and down to discuss their individual needs, they are often surprised what they can achieve.”
