The Tigers Trust takes great pride in commemorating International Volunteer Day, which takes place today.
This global observance stands as a tribute to the invaluable contributions of volunteers worldwide, providing a platform to honour those of individuals who invest their time and skills in effecting positive change within their communities and beyond.
Among the remarkable volunteers at the Tigers Trust is Mary Nolan, a 32-year-old who has dedicated over seven years to the Trust. Mary's journey with the Tigers Trust began as a participant in the Trust’s DS Active sessions, designed for individuals living with Down’s syndrome, offering her a chance to engage in the joy of football.
In her role as a volunteer, Mary gracefully undertakes a variety of tasks within the office, extending a helping hand to the walking footballers during and after their sessions.
From her initial days as a somewhat reserved individual, Mary has blossomed into a confident figure, citing the social aspect of volunteering as a source of genuine enjoyment. Expressing her sentiment, Mary shared, "I really enjoy the socializing aspect of volunteering and look forward to seeing everyone on a weekly basis; the people who work here are like my best friends."
Mary, who once represented Team GB at the Special Olympics World Games in Athens, aspires to be a role model for others through her volunteering and achievements. She emphasises her pride in promoting female empowerment in the through sports and disability sports.
In appreciation of Mary's dedication as a volunteer, the Tigers Trust extends heartfelt gratitude for her significant contributions, acknowledging the infectious joy she brings to the office each week.
