Active Schools Volunteer of the Month - August

Emma Crawford

Emma Crawford has been volunteering with Falkirk Active Schools for the last 18 months and has developed into one of our most valuable volunteers. Emma has helped out at a number of schools in the Bo'ness area as well as helping out with our holiday camps and some large scale events.

Active Schools Coordinator Blair Ferguson said,

"Emma really impressed me with her dedication to volunteering over the Summer holidays. She gave up her own school holidays to come along and help younger kids enjoy themselves and get active at our camps. Without the help of volunteers like Emma, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do."
