Full Name: Moira Munro
CSSC Role: Eastern Region Golf Organiser
Why did you decide to volunteer for CSSC?
I became a volunteer earlier this year as I think I can make a positive contribution to CSSC and particularly my interest and love for golf. I played golf as a teenager to a high standard but gave it up when I went to university and started my career in the police service.
Thirty years later, I moved next door to a golf club and started playing again. Although I can’t hit the ball as far and have not quite got back to my single figure handicap.
How long have you been a volunteer and what do you enjoy about your role?
I enjoy that I get the chance to play at different courses around East Anglia and especially meeting and playing with such a diverse range of people.
What do you enjoy doing outside of CSSC?
I have an interest in travel and adventure. Last year I visited Australia and enjoyed seeing a small part of this amazing country. Encouraging and supporting athletes at the Invictus Games in Sydney was inspiring and truly humbling.
What are you looking forward to next?
I’m looking forward to organising the Eastern Region Golf Qualifier on 7 July 2020 at Lakeside Lodge Golf Club, Cambridgeshire. I’m also playing in and contributing to CSSC golf tournaments around the country.
Who would you invite to your dream dinner party (four max)?
I enjoy and admire those who have: depth of thought, absolute integrity and fairness, those who challenge the establishment and role models who stand up for diversity and freedom of thought - you decide what each represents! Ludovic Kennedy, Michelle Obama, Cressida Dick and John Bercow.
What advice would you give to new volunteers or people thinking of volunteering?
Volunteering is incredibly rewarding because you meet and make new friends. Doors open and opportunities are there to seize. Enjoy and embrace!
