I decided to apply for the position after Liverpool won the first Development Cup. Having been Liverpool’s Manager and helping the team to grow from 5 players to a full squad was amazing I figured that helping other baby teams set up and develop would be equally awesome. I wanted other people to experience the sport that helped me cope with a crazy university course by giving me a family away from home.
Things I’ve got out of volunteering is meeting new people in the community, feeling accomplished when a new team sets up and a great way to jazz up my CV without having to invest hours and hours of my time weekly. I think this is one of the reasons stopping people from volunteering for QUK – “I don’t have time” – I tend to sort out things for the department on bus journeys and the team I work within are very supportive. So get stuck in!
