Why Volunteer?

You don’t have to be a fencer to get involved with volunteering for BF or your fencing club. There are plenty of opportunities to get involved for people of all ages and skills.

Recent research by Sport England has found that some of the benefits of volunteering  include:

  • Building self-esteem and confidence
  • Learning and developing new skills
  • Enhancing work experience and building a CV
  • Being active and improving health and well-being
  • Meeting new people and broadening your social network
  • Giving something back to your sport
  • Making a difference in the community
  • Having fun

More information about the benefits of volunteering can be found on  Sport England ‘s website.
