Like many voluntary organisations, our swimming club has a parent run committee and a set of coaches/teachers who volunteer and give up their time freely to assist with the running of our club. We heavily upon our dedicated volunteer workforce, without these people the club would not survive.
There are many ways in which you can get involved and make a real difference to the way our club functions. We welcome help from anyone within the Club or local community, whether you can offer a commitment to a role with defined regular tasks or whether you prefer to help on an occasional basis.
There are many different volunteering opportunities and roles to suit your skills and experience. Whether you can spare an hour a week or an hour a day, your time will really make a difference.
