Last year we volunteered with two disabled swimming clubs: Starfish and Fleetwell. Both have very friendly, relaxed environments and the role involves talking with people and supporting them in the water, helping them to feel at ease. It is a very rewarding experience and something that’ll look good on your CV. Please message me (Rosalind Walden) if you are interested in volunteering with UCLSC.
This year we will be organising a ‘Blood for Love Ball’. This event is held around Valentine’s day and it raises awareness for donating blood. You will have the chance to donate blood on campus at some point before the event, in exchange for drinks vouchers. The ball will be a chance for you to dress up and have a fun evening with fellow swimmers and non-swimmers. Here are some pictures from a past event we organised. Hope to see lots of people there this year!
