Maxwell Apaladaga Ayamna, founder of the Sheffield Environmental Movement, has been named the winner in this year’s Heritage category of the National Lottery Awards.

Revering nature since his childhood in rural Ghana, Maxwell grew to love the English countryside after moving to Sheffield to study environmental management in the late 1990s.

He went on to found 100 Black Men Walk for Health with two Afro-Caribbean friends, intended to get middle-aged Black men walking – as they are more susceptible to diseases like type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure.

The project inspired the Royal Court Theatre play Black Men Walking, which explores 500 years of black people in the English countryside, and later evolved into monthly walking group Walk4Health, which now includes other ethnicities, women and young people.

Maxwell has been recognised for his work opening up the outdoors to people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities.
