Owls boss to attend service

Have your say

SHEFFIELD Wednesday manager Dave Jones will join in a Celebration of Sport service at Sheffield Cathedral on Monday, November 12.

The Owls boss will be joined by Tim Ellis, the Bishop of Grantham, who is a massive football fan. Representatives from a number of local sporting clubs and organisations will be in attend the service which commences at 7.30pm.

Rev Peter Allen, Chaplain for Sport in the Diocese of Sheffield, said: “My hope is to make this a real celebration of sport, in gathering together people from across the sporting spectrum.

“I believe that in this Olympic and Paralympic year we have been reminded of the positive contribution sport makes to the lives of so many people. I believe we in Sheffield and the surrounding area really do have something to come together and give genuine thanks for.”

There will be a sports marketplace at the service where sports clubs and organisations will have the opportunity to have a display for people to view their involvement in the community through sport.
