Woking AC fights the Volunteer Crunch
The entirely volunteer workforce of Woking Athletic Club has, for the last 60 years, provided a great sporting experience in athletics to hundreds of youngsters each year from right across the Borough, taking them from complete novice to competing at the best of their ability, in some cases making them the best athletes in the country. Currently the club has more than 150 eager young aspiring Olympians learning the art of athletics, and the Club is now in need of more volunteers to help them achieve their best - in fact there are another 70 youngsters on the waiting list because the Club does not have enough coaches to train them! The Club already funds the training of its volunteers as coaches, officials, first aiders, general helpers etc., but in a brand new initiative it has decided to invest a large sum of its own money in the recruitment of a part time Volunteer Coordinator who will be responsible for finding and coordinating the club's volunteers workforce. Sally Taylorson starts the job on 1 June, and will be the first paid employee of Woking AC in its history. Stephen Wilder, the Club Chairman, said "With a membership of over 300, our volunteers are vital to our ability to continue the long and successful tradition of athletics provision in Woking, so although the Club receives no external financial support, we believe this appointment is crucial to the long term viability of the Club." Anyone wishing to help and learn a new skill should contact Sally via the Club's website at www.wokingac.com
