Volunteers in Sport

Local people are being urged to put their names forward to help make their mark and help make sport happen in Wiltshire.

The Sport Makers programme, funded by the National Lottery, aims to recruit tens of thousands of volunteers to organise and lead community sporting activities during 2012, the Olympics year.

In Wiltshire, this initiative is being spearheaded by the Wiltshire and Swindon Sports Partnership (WASP).

As a partner of WASP, Wiltshire Council is fully behind this initiative. Conservative Cabinet member for Leisure, Cllr Stuart Wheeler, said:  

We’re hoping that Sport Makers will organise and support hundreds of new hours of grassroots sport across Wiltshire. While doing so, they will bring the Olympic and Paralympic values to life in every community.

The first workshop for anyone interested in becoming a Sport Maker, is being held on January 25, 2012 at Stanley Park, Chippenham, from 6pm-9pm. Other workshops will be held across the county at later dates (check).
