Helen Mack, the Regions lead on swim21 and Young Volunteer Programme was awarded the President’s Plate by Regional President Roger Prior at the Region’s Annual Council Meeting in September.
Well known to all clubs in the Region as a ‘go to’ person, Helen’s work also includes organising training courses and keeping us all up to date with our sport in the Region through the monthly Club Update.
She is also involved in looking for funding opportunities to support clubs and volunteers. In addition Helen works with the SER Development Group and has recently started working with discipline groups.
On being presented with the award Helen said: ‘It was a total shock, I had no idea. I thoroughly enjoy my role with the SER and working alongside some amazing and committed volunteers. It is great to work within the sport which gave me so much enjoyment and fulfilment as a swimmer during my time at City of Sheffield SC and I still love to teach as a volunteer for my local club and schools’.
The President’s Plate is awarded annually by the outgoing President.
