Our very own BYRDS Ambassador for Wales and BYRDS committee member Briony Rose Cutler was the proud recipient of a Torch Trophy Trust award last night at their 54th annual awards ceremony at the British Olympic Association HQ in London. The Torch Trophy Trust recognises the commitment of the unsung heroes of sport - our volunteers. Briony was nominated by British Dressage for her sheer dedication and drive to support young riders and the admirable way she's taken on the challenge of her Ambassador's role and committee appointment.
Each year a Trophy is dedicated to the memory of the late Lord Aberdare, a founder member of the Trust. Briony was selected this year in recognition of Lord Aberdare’s strong links with Wales.
BD Marketing Director Julie Frizzell who was present at the awards and instrumental in putting Briony forward commented; "Briony is a young lady we are immensely proud of. To have the opportunity to share the selfless work she does for the love of dressage and the engagement of young riders is an honour. To have the chance to share her story and see one of our young shining lights recognised by the Torch Trophy Trust is priceless."
