      Sport doesn’t necessarily help my research directly, but it does give me time out from my work. If all I did was work on my research I’d get very bored and loose the concentration. Taking part in sports gives me time away to rest my brain and come back to my research fresh and maybe even see things I’d never previously considered!

      Sports volunteering gives me skills such as organisational skills and time management skills which I can use whilst planning my PhD workload.
