Thoroughly enjoyed the day - really felt part of the team. Team Leader Amy and official Ian were really patient, explained everything and gave us volunteers a real insight of athletics from 'pitch side'. Look forward to another athletics opportunity soon. Thank you/Diolch yn fawr iawn.

very busy day and very hot, it was enjoyable to be of help and be part of the action, however due to the intense heat i think some breaks should have been built in.

Enjoyed helping at the Athletics Stadium on a very hot day. Looked after very well by Sport Cardiff with a non stop supply of water which was really appreciated. Welsh Athletics Officials approachable and very helpful. This was a nice event to be involved in.
