Volunteer of the Month

Volunteer of the MonthCongratulations to our Active Schools Volunteer of the Month for November – Kasey Saunders . Kasey has been coaching the after school basketball programme for over a year at Hallglen Primary.

Graeme cluster Active Schools Coordinator – Jen Cairns said, “Kasey has developed as a great coach over this last year, in skill and confidence. She was a shy sports leader that came out to the school to help with a club this time last year and has now taken on this role as school team coach running the club every Friday night. She was Hallglen pupil herself and is a great role model to the local kids. Without Kasey investing her time into this club these pupils would not have their own team. Well deserved Kasey”
