London Swimming Letter of Thanks

Dear London Swimming Volunteers
To ensure the smooth running and operation of the region there are a number of tasks/roles that are required some more complex and difficult than others. The professionalism and dedication of our Volunteers over the last year has proved invaluable to us, offering support at the Regional Events and it gives me great personal pleasure to be asked to make it known to you the gratitude of the board members and staff of the London Region for the valuable contribution and hard work you have provided in this essential role.

Volunteers are the lifeblood of the sport and without these people the Region would definitely struggle to survive.

Yours sincerely,
 
Ralph Shortland
London Swimming President 2016/2017
