Zoe Bell wins Aquaforce Volunteer Award

Zoe Bell has won the Young Volunteer Award at the Aquaforce Volunteer Awards 2010.

Over the last 12 months 16-year-old  Zoe, who is also a Royal Life Saving Society qualified lifeguard, has been actively involved in all areas of Blyth Lifeguard and Swimming Club and has been described as ‘a real credit to the club.’

She teaches young children to swim and often helps out with coaching young competitive swimmers and lifeguards as well.

Club Chairman Brian Dawson said: “She goes beyond her duty to ensure that all who need help receive it.

“She is enthusiastic, reliable and always keen to improve her performance and at not quite 17, it is a delight to see the positive impact she has on not only the young swimmers, but the swimming club as a whole.

“Zoe acts as a role model to other young people at her swimming club and makes each and every swimmer feel welcome. Nothing is ever too much trouble for her and she is always ready, willing and able to step in at the last minute and help.

“Zoe is a real star who is a positive asset to the sport and will no doubt become even brighter as time goes on. It is a pleasure to see somebody working so hard for swimming at such a young age.”

Zoe is also a very active member of the Youth Committee at the club and she regularly organises social events both by herself and with the help of others to increase the morale of young club members.

She has also recently begun working with disability swimmers and saw one of her swimmers win gold at this year’s National Junior Disability Championships.
