Meeting Prince WilliamDate Posted: 01/10/2013 | Posted In: Latest news
Hannah Marshall left QE three years ago but has maintained strong links with College, regularly returning to help with sport and passing on her experience of volunteering to current students. She has just graduated from Northumbria University with a degree in Applied Sports Science with Coaching and is one of 150 people in the country being awarded for their services to grassroots Football by being invited to Buckingham Palace to meet Prince William.
Paul Carroll, Sports Co-ordinator at QE, says:
‘Hannah’s at it again! Her energy and commitment to grass roots sport is phenomenal and she really deserves this recognition. After getting involved in Football, Coaching and the Football Futures programme in her time at QE, she’s gone on to do more and more. She spent this summer at the Fountain of Hope, a centre for street children in Lusaka, Zambia coaching Football and educating the children about HIV/AIDS. She is a role model for others and everyone at QE is so proud of her.’
‘I can’t believe it’s three years since I left QE – it’s always great to come back to College and help out! QE got me started with my real involvement in sport and I’ve now been lucky to be appointed to the full- time post of Student Sport President for Team Northumbria, co-ordinating student sport at Northumbria University. In my very little spare time I continue to be a Football Futures Ambassador for Durham FA and a very proud player for Newcastle United Women’s Football Club. I’m very excited about going down to Buckingham Palace and will always be grateful to QE for getting me started with volunteering.’
Hannah goes to Buckingham Palace on October 7th.
