Yvonne Brown - Events marshall
Brown volunteers at a number of our events.
Here is her story:
I first joined the BHF volunteering team, I covered the
registration and/or the female changing areas. Both of these
duties are extremely hectic, especially when there is a sea of
people waiting for you to help them, and I loved it.
But then I was given my first marshalling role and that’s where
I came alive. With my yellow vest, radio in hand and sheer
enthusiasm, I encourage the fabulous runners in their "personal"
journeys. I love it!
why do I do it? Well, because not only do I have the time and will
make the time, but I genuinely have a real passion and enthusiasm
for any of the volunteering endeavours I undertake.
Without a shadow of a doubt my best BHF volunteer event was the
2011 Tower of London Jog where Nadia Sawalha
opened the fun run, and took part. She personally came and thanked
all the volunteers.
give my time to make a difference for future
generations. Being a volunteer has made me grow in
confidence. For me, volunteering is rewarding and I love
