Alisha Palmer

Age: 18
Club: Mansfield Swimming Club

I have been swimming competitively since the age of 9, during which I have made national standard in a number of events and I have been on the British Swimming England Talent Camps for Open Water for 2 years consecutively.

I got involved in volunteering in January 2010 to help with my BTEC National Diploma and things have really taken off from there. Firstly, in the deep end session then in the small pool and onto the lanes.

Since January I have completed over 250 hours volunteering Mansfield Swimming Club, county championships, regional championships, club galas, Nottingham’s first Outlaw Ironman Triathlon, Nottingham City Youth Olympics and Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club's world record attempt.

I now have my NPLQ Lifeguarding certificate and my Level 1 teaching in aquatics.
