I have been a swimming volunteer on Sundays for over 10 years. It’s great to spend time with the ILEAP members and volunteers in a fun and supportive environment.

The Sunday swim has long become part of my weekend routine. It has allowed me to meet a lot of like-minded people who have enjoyed sharing in running the swimming sessions. Our present group of helpers have got on easily and well for several years now. Many of the disabled members and their families who come get to be good friends as you get to know them, and sometimes they prove to have unexpected hidden talents. It has been a pleasure to have been part of the group for so long.

The reasons I volunteer – “I really enjoy helping with the Sunday swimming sessions. I think I get as much, if not more, from the sessions than the people who attend  – many of whom have become good friends over the months and years. As well as seeing and joining in the fun they get from our sessions, it’s great to see how many of them have progressed. Some started as non swimmers and have gone on to swim a few yards, then a width and on to a full length. “But it’s also fantastic to see the real spirit, character and determination that everyone demonstrates – but above all it’s great fun for all of us. It still amazes me that with all of the many difficulties that many of the members obviously have, they never moan or complain and are always asking if you have had a good week. Gives a new perspective on life!”
