Volunteer Profile - Meet Gemma Thompson

Published:

Without our Event Volunteers, our work simply wouldn't be possible. Some people join us for a one-off volunteering opportunity, some volunteer with us once a year, and some become regular volunteers like Gemma. Gemma shares her experience of volunteering with the Triathlon Trust.

"My motivation to volunteer for the Triathlon Trust is my love for a triathlon so it was my way of giving something back to the sport.

The best part of being a Triathlon Trust volunteer is seeing the excitement on the children’s faces when they are completing the activities. You also get a chance to meet some pretty amazing people.

"The tasks I undertake varies, anything from safely fitting children with their helmets and bikes to encouraging them on the run course or handing out medals.

"The advice I would give to people thinking of volunteering with the Triathlon Trust is to come and give it a try. It is very rewarding and gives you the opportunity to learn new skills and meet new people. It also looks good on your CV.

"As well as volunteering for the Triathlon Trust I am training to be a Local Technical Official and I am also on the Yorkshire regional committee managing the social media channels."

Thank you Gemma for choosing to support the Triathlon Trust!
