Volunteer of the Month: August - Phil Edwards, Amlwch Canoe CLub

September 10 2018

In 2009 Phil and his wife Jane moved to Anglesey. Already with a love for canoeing, they joined Amlwch Canoe Club. Shortly after, they become more involved and started to run the club and helped it get off the ground. Phil is the chairperson and undertakes many a task such as club monthly newsletters, organises trips and grant applications. His dedication and hard work doesn’t end there, Phil also assist with Junior Sandman and Outdoor Partnership Open Days.

A really big thank you is given to phil as he has been able to secure a bronze and now a silver Insports Wales Awards for the club, with a view to strive towards gold. Without Phil these awards wouldn’t have been possible.

No words can express how grateful I am to call Phil, not only a club member but also a friend. He has helped me to grow and develop from a novice to a competent paddler.

I speak on behalf of the club members; Thank You Phil.
