Jessica Morrissey wins Young Volunteer of the Year for the North West Region.

Congratulations Jessica. This is your nomination

Jessica has been with the club since she was 8 yrs old, initially competing in Cross Country, Track & Field & any events she could. I have team managed Jess & over the years she has grown in to an amazing individual. She is adorable. In competing she always gave 100%, training hard, always has a smile & never rude or cross. In recently years she has volunteered with us, doing more & more and is a role model to all. Jessica coaches our 7 yrs plus beginners each week, has the leading athletics, coaching assistant & Assistant Official qualifications & has attended the 365 workshop in her spare time. She volunteers for our 2 weeks of Startrack Summer athletics each year, from 10am to 3pm everyday, encouraging the youngsters & mentoring the new leaders from 14yrs. She is always bubbly, eager to help, learns quickly, always happy and smiling even when she fractured her ankle she didn’t moan.

Jessica deserves to win, as she has done so much for the club & never asked for anything from us. She is passionate about athletics and it would boost her confidence and celebrate her volunteering, the club would support this 100%

Can you let Dave and Debbie know if you are able to volunteer for us again this year, you all did such a great job last year and earned the club a donation for your efforts. This was greatly appreciated and came to nearly £500.
We are asking our course marshals to register online by November 30th.

As usual we will be able to sort out lifts nearer the time and see you there. If you are not 100% please do sign on as we need 27 volunteers as last year. If you have not volunteered before it is good fun, a lunch bag is provided and you get a jacket to keep. We are about 5 miles from the finish near Stretford Arndale so essential for cheering runners along, our athletes included.
