This is our list of our highlighted volunteers who continually help our sporting community succeed

AEL for web

Volunteering is at the heart of sport in Scotland, and none more so than right here in East Lothian. Without our dedicated Volunteers, sport just wouldn't happen and below is a list of those individuals who have been nominated as going above and beyond for their local sporting community! 

Whether they are leading the rugby team for weekly training sessions, or making teas and coffees for the hockey spectators, these individuals deserve a Thank You for giving up thier time so often for the local community. 

Everyone who has been nominated in 2017 for a Spotlight award will be inducted to our Roll of Honour (below) and a very special few will receive a brand new Spotlight award.
