Be A Part of the ASA’s Volunteer Celebration

26 April 2013

Volunteers Week is an annual campaign that runs from 1st - 7th June, led by Volunteering England, celebrating the fantastic contribution that volunteers make across the country.

This year the theme for the week is ‘Time to say Thank You.’

The ASA would like to use this week and the time around it to formally and publically thank our aquatic volunteer workforce, and so have a campaign running over the summer to recognise your dedication and contribution to the sport.

As part of our campaign, we are looking to create a video which will feature athletes and ASA staff saying thank you, and will showcase some of our volunteers in action.  We are also going to feature case studies, photos and letters about our volunteers and the fantastic work you do in a special edition of the Volunteering E-Newsletter – Making a Difference.

We would therefore like to invite you to be a part of these celebrations by sending in photos, videos, or stories about volunteers in your clubs, at events or within your region.  This could be as simple as sending in a photo of your club committee, writing a letter about a volunteer who has gone the extra mile or filming an interview with a coach on why they spend hours watching people swim up and down!  Whatever you want to do we would love to be able to include this in our celebrations – so get creative and send us the results! 

Everyone who sends in a story, picture or video will win one of our Special Edition Pin Badges, and the first 10 entries we receive will also win free membership to British Swimming’s Go GBR Supporters Club, which will provide you with priority tickets for events, exclusive club offers and 10% discount on Go GBR merchandise!

Photos, videos and stories should be sent to by Monday 6th May.

There will be lots more going on in the build up to and during Volunteers Week, so keep your eyes on our website for more things to get involved in! For more information on Volunteers Week visit
