Share This Post

Merseyside Woman of the Year 2023, Heather Evans, received a further accolade at Aintree Races earlier this month, when she was presented with the prestigious Rose Paterson Award Community Sportswoman Award.

The award was launched by Aintree Racecourse in partnership with BBC Radio Merseyside at the 2021 Randox Grand National Festival, in memory of Aintree’s late Chairman, Rose Paterson, who sadly passed away in 2020. 

The award combines two of Rose’s passions, the community and the Grand Women’s Summit, and its aim is to recognise on an annual basis a girl or woman from Merseyside who is making a difference to grassroots community sport, either through participation or support.

Heather was recognised for the support that the Halle O’Brien CIC provides to young people in sport, using money raised to support sporting goals, training and travel.

Heather attended the races, along with her mum and fellow MWOTY 2023, June Russell to receive her award.

Congratulations Heather and keep up your amazing work 🥂
