Donna Marshall, Visitor Experience Manager at Severn Trent, said: “As Birmingham 2022’s Official Nature & Carbon Neutral Partner, we’re really passionate about leaving a lasting social and environmental legacy following the Games, and what a legacy it will leave for Leek and the wider region if we can help more young people engage with sport.
