Wanted: sporty sorts

Borders Sport and Leisure (BSL) is working with the Volunteer Centre Borders to recruit sports volunteers.

The organisation is launching a new campaign seeking people willing to play an active part in leading an extensive programme of sporting opportunities and events across the region.

New guides have been created for clubs and individuals, offering advice on how to get involved, suggestions for clubs on volunteer polices, role descriptions and other information to assist with the recruitment and management of volunteers.

Graeme Murdoch, BSL Active Schools manager, said: “Our campaign is well under way and will continue until the end of March.

“We have developed resource guides to support the campaign and I would urge any interested people to get in touch. We will ensure that the relevant training and mentoring is provided, and that volunteering in sport becomes both an enjoyable and rewarding experience for them.”

BSL is keen to recruit volunteers throughout the Borders, but is particularly hopefully of gaining more support for activities in Eyemouth and Galashiels.
