Our year in pictures.

Our favourite photos from 2015

Here at Join In, we’re lucky to receive photos of our volunteers on a regular basis. Over the course of this year, we’ve worked with a handful of professional photographers and also received loads of pics taken by just about everyone with a smartphone.

Here are our favourite photos of the year. Look closely to see if you can spot anyone you know!


The UK’s blind golfers couldn’t play without volunteers. Alex Harvey-Brown↑ captured some lovely shots from our day at Hindhead Golf Club in Surrey.

We launched our #BigHelpOut campaign with BBC Get Inspired and it was great to see how far and wide the speech bubble turned up!  


By volunteering, you enable 8.5 people to get active in local sport. Many thanks to our Local Leader Jasha Fletcher and the boxers of St Paul’s ABC  for illustrating the point. Look closely and you’ll see Olympic gold medallist Luke Campbell in the lineup.


Sprinter Christian Malcolm was among the sporting heroes who turned up to thank volunteers at the Anniversary Games

Our patron Eddie Izzard spent hours upon hours helping launch the #BigHelpOut campaign. He even found time to help in the kitchen.

But Eddie wasn’t the only one generating momentum. Many thanks to the synchronised swimmers at Hythe Aqua Swimming Club for spreading the word!


Pegasus Gymnastics is one of thousands of clubs that thrive thanks to volunteers. This lovely snap was taken by Helen Cooper of Acer Photo Art.

Our Local Leaders lit out the territories with the #BigHelpOut speech bubble, capturing the magic of grassroots sport. 


Our Local Leaders… Our partners… Thousands of people giving up their spare time to make local sport special. It’s been a great year!
