I’ve always been keen to volunteer for events, I suppose since being in the Brownies and Guides in my childhood to taking part in the Duke of Edinburgh Scheme way back in my teens.
Since 2012 I’ve been involved in being a Games Maker where I was in the Photo Team in the Stadium for the Paralympics. More recently I’ve helped out at Park Run and headed up to beautiful Yorkshire around this time of year to be a Tour Maker – to Keep the crowds safe and engage with spectators and be a Flag and Whistle blower out on the route. This year I was based at Robin’s Hood Bay and just outside Leeds.
These experiences for me have been fun, rewarding, confidence building and totally positive.
I can’t recommend doing some volunteering highly enough.
Do good Feel good.
