She has long been considered royalty amongst the folks here at Atrium, but it has finally been made official!
Sandra Price, a long-standing volunteer at Atrium Health, has been awarded an MBE for services to netball in Coventry. Sandra has volunteered more than 55 years to the sport, joining Copsewood as a player, aged 14. During her playing days, Sandra competed at local, county and regional level as well as being selected for a ‘Rest of the World’ team to play against England.
Last week Sandra and her family travelled down to London for the big day. Sandra who was very nervous then got to receive her honour from the queen’s son Prince Charles.
Sandra has also enjoyed a glittering coaching and umpiring career, officiating at county level as well helping develop an army of umpires in her role as an England Netball Umpire Tutor and Assessor. She has been an active coach throughout the county, working with both junior and senior players, as well as dedicating more of her time as County Manager and an England Senior Team Manager.
Sandra has been volunteering for over 3 years with Atrium Health and is a valued member of our team here. We are all very proud of her.
