David Curtis, 18, Bingham
David has taught a group of disabled swimmers at Bingham Penguins Swimming Club in their weekly swimming session. He has achieved his Swim England level one certificate in teaching swimming and has started level two, although this has had to be postponed due to Covid-19. He has also joined the Bingham Penguins Club committee as a trustee.
David always makes his lessons fun and engaging, and the swimmers are making great progress as a result. All the swimmers leave his lessons with big smiles. David's volunteering role has been crucial in getting the club back up and running. He has ensured his swimmers have had a gentle return to the pool after the first lockdown, and has helped them to slowly build up their fitness and confidence levels.
David is a very caring and committed member of the community. He gives his time generously and the club and swimmers benefit from the greatly.
