“Being a volunteer for British Weight Lifting is a fantastic experience and an amazing opportunity especially if you’re interested in events like I am. I have volunteered at BWL events for about 2 years now. I would definitely recommend it, it’s an absolutely great thing to do! I enjoy it loads. One of the duties I have been involved in is supporting the Event Manager and the Management Team with a range of tasks including registration, checking tickets and directing Visitors”
“When I first volunteered with BWL it was a week before my first weightlifting competition. I thought it would be a good experience to find out what went on, now I am totally hooked! BWL always make you feel welcome and I have gained so much knowledge, both from a technical side and also a competing side. I just love being able to help out with something that not just benefits me but others. The wealth of knowledge from the guys at BWL is second to none”
