Secretary

I am a non-fencing mum of two girls. My younger daughter started fencing at an after school club and her passion grew from there. I started volunteering in 2017 as Secretary for the Eastern Region Committee after seeing a handwritten sign at one of the competitions asking for volunteers to help. I was hesitant as i didn’t really fancy hanging around in sports halls for hours on end but the Secretary role didn’t need me to be at the competitions which was a relief!

I love feeling that I’m helping, even in a small way, to increase participation in the sport.

Treasurer

I am a (non-fencing) Mum of three who works part-time as a Finance Manager and I started volunteering for Eastern region in September 2015 as social media manager, then took over events when the organiser, at the time, decided to step down which I do with help from a small team of volunteers of mainly non-fencing parents. In December 2017 I also took over the treasurer position because this is my background and stood down from the social media role. Alongside this I support my son’s fencing club as a parent helper.

I do love doing what I do. I hope that I make a difference to the sport participation by keeping the events going and there is a bonus that I have made a lot of new friends along the way, which is great!

As with many fencing parents, I spend a lot of time travelling with my son to support his fencing journey.
