We are absolutely delighted to be in a position where we can invest in our volunteers. Huge congratulations to Trish who completed her mental health first aid training, to help with her work in our Mental Health support team. Bronagh from the club will also be taking the same qualification to join coach Jane as one of three coaches with this fantastic qualification.
Then there’s a shout out to Coach Bram who is going to be taking on more running coaching qualifications with England Athletics and completing his Level 2 Coach in Running Fitness Qualification!
Hats off too to our new qualified Level 1 Running Coaches - Sasha, Tara, Mark, Janette, Bronagh, Trish, Charlotte, Jill and Kath! It is also great to see the majority of our coaches are also first aid qualified, again, we have been lucky enough to find funding to finance this important training. (Coach Jane also qualified as a Personal Trainer this month, but this was funded personally).
With 13 coaches now at the #MileShyClub in Trafford alone, we are setting the foundations to start up more clubs. We also couldn’t go without saying a huge thank you to our non-running volunteers - our social events organisers and our social media experts! We really are a great team.
