Our very own membership secretary Val Coltart is in the DG Life Volunteer of the Year finals.
Just reading what she does in the community makes us tired. Good luck Val! Everyone at the club wishes you success.
The text below is from DG Life.
A “quiet, unassuming person who likes to help better the lives of others”, Valerie Coltart volunteers for Dumfries Running Club , Dumfries Saints RFC, Dumfries & Galloway Royal Infirmary and Maxwelltown West Church.
As a jog leader with the running club, Valerie introduces, encourages and coaches new runners and helps at club
events. With a “huge passion for rugby”, she is membership secretary for Dumfries Saints, and supports the club in many other ways.
As a volunteer in the Children’s Ward at DGRI Valerie supports young patients whose parents cannot be with them. And a dedicated church elder, she does everything from cleaning to helping members get to Sunday service.
The winner of our Volunteer of the Year Award, sponsored by SP Energy Networks will be announced at Easterbrook Hall this Friday evening.
