Falkirk’s Howgate Shopping Centre is teaming up with The Falkirk Herald to search for the sporting stars of the future through the Wee Champions initiative.

The Howgate wants parents to nominate children age 17 or under and give them a chance to receive a Wee Champions trophy, a £100 gift card and a private training session with Falkirk’s own Commonwealth Games hopeful Jade Nimmo.

Margaret Foy, Howgate marketing manager, said: “We want to find local children and teenagers who have what it takes to get on the podium - particularly youngsters who have had to cope with barriers and difficulties or helped in the success of others.”

Nomination forms are available online at www.intohowgate.co.uk or from the Howgate helpdesk until June 22.

Voting closes on July 31 and winners will be announced on August 4.
