So far this Volunteer Month we’ve been encouraging you to talk about your volunteer experiences, and University of Surrey Netball Club want to talk about a special volunteer in particular.
We’ll hand over to them to share their appreciation for this superstar volunteer:
When we think of volunteering and going above and beyond for the sport of netball our minds immediately jump to one person.
Hannah Rowell has been an integral part of University of Surrey Netball since she started at the University of Surrey as an Economics student in 2013 and has only been more and more involved as the years have gone on.
Below is only a taster of what she does for the club completely in her own time whilst also completing her degree!:
- In charge of screens at Surrey Storm games, including Netball London Live.
- Coaching the development squad and running social sessions for any members of the university to join in despite having a full time job in her placement year.
- Won Coach of the Year 2014/15 at our Sports Achievement Ball, usually won by coaches who get paid to coach every week.
- Umpiring every week and even running the local Guildford league on a Thursday.
- Vice President, Social Coach, University Netball Officer (UNO) Representative and Fixtures Secretary of the University of Surrey Netball club this year alone.
- Starting an intermural league to make netball more accessible for men and women at the university.
- Running charity events such as quizzes and doing charity walks with the support of the netball club in charities close to her heart.
Although Hannah hasn’t been volunteering as long as many other people, the amount she has achieved whilst only being in her early twenties is phenomenal and inspiring.
