Reading Santa Run 2018

This event should have been in every Club Member’s diary by now as a way of raising funds for Adventure Dolphin while making a super pre Christmas event for all. Hopefully the Social Group will take on the coordination as I will be stewarding on the day but happy to liase with whoever beforehand.

The outfits – Santas for adults and elves for children – are included in the entry fee and then members gain their own sponsorship for taking part. Many charities earn themselves a great deal of money!

I have already left a pile of the original fliers in the development room and now have posters etc. If this could be promoted at any upcoming events, in the newsletter or by a separate mailing, we should be able to enter a formidable group. The Adventure Dolphin Team should look fantastic, a team photo must be taken!

Kind regards

Tim

Leaders/helpers’ day success

More than 60 of Adventure Dolphin’s leaders and helpers came together for their annual training event (Sunday 28th January 2108) which included a range of outdoor activities and club updates.

The morning session, run by Outdoor Academy reminded coaches and helpers alike what it’s like to try something new for the first time as they introduced participants to a mobile caving system, field archery (like clay pigeon shooting), kelly kettling and the climbing wall.

Following a superb lunch whipped up by our volunteer catering team, the afternoon covered a series of topics including DBS checks, volunteer hours, the future of Dolphin Centre, amends to coaching qualifications from British Canoeing and the latest marketing initiatives that are being undertaken.

Helper, Ollie Hatchett said, “It was my first training day and I was surprised by how good it was. The caving was brilliant, I loved the chilli and the updates were really helpful.”

The day was organised and run by Trustees Kevin Dennis and Ed Edwards with input from Group Co-ordinators, , Chairman – Clive Williams, Trustee – Tim Metcalfe, Coach – Claire Hardwick and Marketing – Donna Hatchett.
