Since starting to volunteer in her communtiy at the age of fifteen in 2008. Natalie has gone on to complete over 1000 hours of voluntary work in schools and community clubs. By the time she was 16 she was leading groups of twenty children for sports classes in primary and secondary schools. In sixth year her secondary school clubs were poorly attended. So she put together a team of fifteen sixth year coaches and organised a first year PE takeover. This involved meeting with the PE department and senior pupils to make it possible for the seniors to take PE instead of teachers. This was to raise awareness of clubs within the school and inspire the children to attend them. The seniors who led the classes were also timetabled to run lunchtime and afterschool sports classes. This made a huge difference to the numbers attending. Not content with inspiring secondary pupils Nat went to work in primary schools. She set up and ran a schools netball festival that over one hundred local children attended. She again arranged and organised volunteers as well as promoting fair play by getting children to cheer for other teams and shake hands after games. In April she ran a whole school Olympic event. All children participated in track and field events for a whole afternoon. She also spoke to all children about the olympics. She is now doing the olympia challenge that involves over a thousand secondary children running between one and five miles to reach a combined total of 2419 miles.
