Matthew has been working extremely hard to earn 300 plus volunteering hours to his name. He has become an important asset to both Peterborough City Rowing Club and the City of Peterborough Swimming Club (COPS) by providing his services at training as a coach and administrator for up to seven and a half hours a week, and organises competitions in both clubs, as well as finding time to train with both clubs himself. For COPS he coaches a squad and beginners, and assists with Club Swimming Galas, progressing now to lead responsibility for a 9-12 year olds meet and assisting with COPS Open meet. For the Rowing Club assisting with team and events administration, he has also assisted with the organisation of the Peterborough Schools Indoor Rowing League. This level of commitment to supporting others to enjoy and develop in two different sports is exceptional, and inspirational, especially when considering that he commits to 12 hours a week to his own rowing training, and swims a further 3½ hours per week.
