"Volunteering has provided me with some fantastic opportunities and allowed me to develop my coaching. Not only has it given me skills and knowledge within sport, it has given me life skills."

Stephanie Greenhorn

"I was a Glasgow Ambassador during the Olympic Games in 2012, a clyde-sider at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games and have volunteered in a number of events in the city over the last two years. The experiences I have gained have allowed me to be more involved in my community and make some fantastic friends."

Anne McKenzie
