A Derbyshire netball coach who has helped promote the sport while battling cancer has picked up a sports award.

Keighley Wood is a Level 2 netball coach who has helped out voluntarily at Hasland Hall School for the past six years.

She has been instrumental in helping many of the school’s teams to win Borough events and represent Chesterfield at county finals with distinction, and also runs the Calow Ladies and Hasland Ladies netball teams.

Keighley has achieved all this while fighting cancer that has required numerous bouts of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, maintaining a remarkably positive attitude throughout and acting as a true inspiration to the students.
