An experience I will never forget

Isabella has been volunteering at Brundall parkrun in Norfolk as part of her Bronze level Duke of Edinburgh Award. She kindly shared with us the feedback from her experience!


My experience at Brundall parkrun, and volunteering for my Bronze Duke of Edinburgh award is one that I will never forget, and hope to continue in the future.


Every week I was welcomed with friendly faces and made to feel at ease, even before completing the run briefing!


The most challenging part for me was being the Run Director and giving out the run briefing, as not many people of my age had done it before, and was not sure if anybody would take me seriously. But everyone listened well and it went without any troubles at all!




I would encourage anyone doing their Duke of Edinburgh award to volunteer at parkrun because they come away with more social skills, co-operation and learn to work as a team.


I would definitely say that because of these factors I would like to come back for my silver award, or at least keep on volunteering at Brundall parkrun!
