Every month the CLIC Sargent Running team celebrates the successes of our amazing runners and volunteers by choosing our Star of the Month.
The month of June has kicked off with National Volunteers' Week so it's a great time to recognise our amazing office volunteers Lizzie and Carine, who were charged with the enormous task of recruiting 200 volunteer marshals for the Bristol 10k, which took place on 31 May.
"I was already volunteering in the Bristol office when the opportunity to help out on the volunteer marshal project came up.
"My role was to get in touch with as many people as possible, spreading the message that we needed volunteers, and to make sure we had all the information we needed.
"It has been a absolute pleasure to work as a team with Carine, and Sarah from the Running Events team was brilliant at giving guidance where we needed it.
"As a university student, it was great to be given some responsibility too – it really helps you to learn on the job, and to really see what you need to work on."
"The event itself was a success, despite drizzly weather, and I learned a lot about event management."
"I loved my time volunteering with the Running Events team in Bristol as a Bristol 10k Project Assistant along with Lizzie and we were supported greatly by Sarah who would always help us when we needed her.
"It was great to be part of the organisation of a local event in my hometown, from the recruitment side to giving signed up marshals plenty of support by being in touch with them leading up to the event."
"I would definitely help out again next year as it was so rewarding to be representing CLIC Sargent and all of the brilliant work it does for others."
