On any day, you are equally likely to find him collaborating with others, planning new events and projects, as to catch him mowing the lawns out the front of the club because it ‘just needs to be done.’ Justin has been involved with PCYC for many years, in a variety of roles from athlete and volunteer to Club Manager. He empathises with everyone who walks into our club and strives to make it a place where the community feels safe, welcome, and valued
