Tanni Grey-Thompson becomes non-executive director of Join In

A London 2012 charity, Join In connects volunteers in the UK with local sports clubs that need their help.

Grey-Thompson (pictured) says: “Volunteers are the heartbeat of sport. Without them, sport as we know it would not exist and I believe they should be praised, encouraged and thanked.

“Join In is the only charity that celebrates and supports volunteers and their contribution to grass roots sport.

“I look forward to working with the Join In team, as we continue to inspire people to help out within sporting communities.”

A former GB wheelchair racer, Grey-Thompson is one of the most successful British Paralympic athletes of all time.

She was made a DBE in 2005 for her services to sport and appointed a life peer in 2010.
