ASA celebrate successful Volunteers’ Week
19 June 2014
The ASA have brought the curtain down on another successful Volunteers’ Week within the aquatics community.
Volunteers’ Week is an annual campaign led by Volunteering England and the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) to celebrate the fantastic contribution that volunteers make to aquatics. This year marked Volunteers' Week’s 30th year.
In line with the theme of 'Recognise and Recruit ' the ASA took the opportunity to thank our fantastic volunteer workforce by creating a Guide to Recruiting Volunteers, encouraging clubs to run ‘taster’ sessions for new volunteers and providing a downloadable certificate.
To celebrate Volunteers’ Week the ASA set a ‘selfie’ challenge. The most creative selfie came from Michael Felse (right) of Northern Wave Swimming Club who won a Speedo AquaBeat Underwater MP3 player.
Clubs also had the opportunity to join in, with Wigan Wasps Swimming Club earning a hand held camera for their club for their team photo. Well done to everyone who entered – we loved seeing your fun and creative photos.
