and what she got from it.

“During the commonwealth games in Birmingham I was fortunate to have the opportunity to volunteer as a field of play member for diving events. I first decided to volunteer during the games to be part of a world class sporting event so close to home which may only come around once in a lifetime. Through volunteering you always make lots of friends and meet new people who you often see at other sporting events too. It was amazing to see how well the divers performed but also very exciting to see the behind the scenes by making sure the pool was ready for broadcasting and competition”.
