Volunteers are the backbone of sport in the UK, without them sport just wouldn't be possible.... Volunteering helps boost communities, people who volunteer in sport feel closer to their communities, they feel they can trust their communities and that they have an impact on what that community is like. I've seen it first hand, people from different backgrounds, ages and areas coming together for a cause they feel strongly about.
I honestly think the majority of Australians are actually a laid back tolerant bunch, which is perhaps why no one notices. Because said nonchalance goes hand in hand with not being particularly vocal. Here we've been afforded the opportunity to show what this country's really about and, at this stage, are taking hold of said opportunity with both hands.
