On Friday 3rd March, I was joined by Young Ambassador Demi where we had the pleasure of presenting the Swale Young Volunteer Champion of the Year to Elysia Spall, for the 2017 Volunteer Swale Awards.
Elysia volunteers as a trainee coach at Sittingbourne and Milton Swimming Club and Rainbows. Her involvement at both has meant many children have grown and developed in the work and techniques they are trying to improve.
Judge and sponsor, Patrick Cantellow, of Swale Young People said: “The Swale Volunteer Awards is an amazing event that brings together Swale’s amazing volunteers and the third sector. All nominations wowed us for all the categories.”
A special shout out should also be given to young finalists Tyler Griffiths and Hollie-Mai Simmonds.
