The Derbyshire Institute of Sport, which supports budding young athletes, has announced a new addition to its board.

David Nelson, senior partner at accountancy and advisory firm PKF Smith Cooper has joined the board as the institute enters a new stage of sustained growth.

DIS had 10 athletes represent Team GB at the Tokyo Olympic Games in 2021 and is aiming for a bumper turnout at next year’s Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

Its latest initiative is the Performance Prep squads at three Derbyshire schools for youngsters aged nine to 11.

David said: “With the Commonwealth Games coming up just down the road in Birmingham, there is no better time for businesses to come together to support our local athletes.”

DIS managing director and founder Chloe Maudsley said: “A warm welcome to David Nelson who I know will make a huge difference to us as we plan our commitments for the next few years.

“I’m proud of the resilience the board members and staff have shown through the pandemic. We are now working on our plans to raise more money in 2022 and help even more athletes in Derbyshire.”
