Robin de Vere Green, Volunteer of the Year

Robin de Vere Green

At the inaugural British Rowing Conference held on Saturday 26th September, Robin de Vere Green of Beccles Rowing Club was named as national Volunteer Year of the Year for his significant contribution to rowing.

Robin is pictured receiving his award at the Awards Dinner from Olympic gold medallist Ben Hunt-Davis, MBE.  The Eastern Region put Robin forward because of his ongoing loyalty, dedication and commitment to his club which opened in 1989. In the last five years as Chairman he worked tirelessly to deliver
the club’s new boathouse – which would have remained a dream without
Robin’s intervention  Read more about the contribution he has made to Beccles Rowing Club here. 

Ben Hunt-Davis went on to entertain his audience by relating how a history of failure to meet his rowing goals prompted him to keep trying until he reached the Sydney Olympics and the ultimate prize of a gold medal.  Ben is Chairman of the World Rowing Junior Championships 2011 and a Project Manager with the British Olympic Association.
