A Swimming Achievement

Well done to Lead Data Protection Officer, Linda Allen who has received an award for the work she does with Stirling Swimming Club, coaching children and adults with physical disabilities.

Linda was the winner of the Community Coach Participation Award at the Forth Valley Disability Sport Awards, which recognise the commitment, achievement and contribution that athletes, coaches, volunteers and clubs have made to the local community in Forth Valley in the last year. She has been coaching for three years and prior to this worked as a coach assistant.

Linda works coaching competitive swimmers aged 14 – 23 years with a variety of physical disabilities, including cerebral palsy and visual impairments, on a voluntary basis five days a week.

Alongside her coaching duties, Linda also assists with the Forth Valley Regional Disability Swimming Squad, of which all her swimmers are members, and attends various swimming galas which involve learning disabilities as well as physical disabilities.
