Who we are

We are a friendly welcoming group mainly run by volunteers.

Mark – Treasurer and Committee Member
I have been swimming with the group for over 20 years now and a committee member for most of that time. I started coming to the group after suffering a very serious car accident which caused a severe head injury and left me with significant mobility problems, needing crutches or a wheelchair to get around. The opportunity to be able to go swimming every Saturday in a safe and warm environment has been invaluable in helping me maintain some level of fitness and mobility. For the last few years now, I have also been the groups treasurer as well as a committee member which has enabled me to give back a little more to this terrific charity/group.

  Sam – Chair of Trustees and Committee Member

 I became Chairperson of the SDSG after starting as a desk volunteer. Outside the Dolphins, I work as a 1:1 classroom assistant and a personal assistant. I have twin daughters with my fiancée and love to play Wheelchair Basketball. I enjoy my time volunteering at the Dolphins and hope to continue for years to come.

Frank – Trustee, Committee Member and Session Manager Volunteer
I have been a volunteer and committee member of the SDSG for over 10 years. I initially came to SDSG with my son for swimming but stayed on with a friendly bunch of volunteers to help run the group which is very rewarding.

Nicola – group Administrator and Fundraiser

I started working for Shepshed Dolphins in 2018, I needed a part time job that would fit between my kids and my small crafting business. I love the group and have seen numbers increase over the years. Seeing the pool full of swimmers on a Saturday morning really is the highlight of the job!
