Volunteer for GP; Hawkins visit; RPMF grants

Sunday 15th October 2017

Volunteer for events with British Athletics

British Athletics are looking for Volunteers for the Müller Indoor Grand Prix Glasgow early in 2017.

The event is taking place at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow on Sunday 25 February, with this top class international GP event back in Scotland following a first visit in 2015.

Applications are open now until Monday 6 November for those looking to be part of the British Athletics team putting on the event. The search is on for volunteers in a whole series of different roles, which vary from Accreditation Assistants to Media Assistants.

The Müller Indoor Grand Prix is part of the IAAF World Tour Series and will have BBC coverage from the Emirates Arena that day.

Young athletes from East Kilbride AC enjoyed a special visit earlier this week from Olympians Callum and Derek Hawkins.

The evening consisted of a Q & A session, with some great questions and answers; a Hawkins led coaching session; and the largest-ever 400m race held at East Kilbride with Callum Hawkins winning from Calum Charters. Finally, there were numerous photos and autographs signed.

Kenny Clements of EKAC told us: ‘We want to forward a big thank you to the brothers for their visit – it really was a great night for the club. Hopefully many of our young athletes have been suitably inspired for their future athletics career.’

Scottish athletes aged between 15 and 23 are now invited to join the application process for the RPMF Annual Grants.

The application process takes place in the autumn of each year and is available to both able-bodied and disability UK athletes. Grants to athletes over 23 may be made in exceptional circumstances.

When the application process is open an athlete will be able to apply directly using the online application form. No other method of application will be accepted and the application process is only available during this time.

The selection process then takes place in early December and the announcements of the award recipients is usually made at the end of December or early January.

If successful in the application process and a RPMF Grant is awarded the athlete shall be notified via an email to this same address. Similarly, if unsuccessful in the application and no grant is awarded, an email shall be sent to inform of the unsuccessful applicant.

Funds are limited but the committee do try to help as many athletes as reasonably possible within our limits and guidelines.

Grant Application forms for 2018

The 2018 application process will run from Friday 15 September to Sunday 19 November.
