About Active Devon
Hannah Colston

Senior Development Manager - Hannah Colston

I joined the Active Devon team in November 2014, prior to this I was the South West Regional Manager for a national charity called Sported. I have been involved in Sports Development for over 10 years with various roles including 5 years with West Devon Borough Council as the Sports Development Officer. 

I really enjoy my work and have always been driven by the difference that being active can make to people’s lives- don’t you always feel happier after you’ve been for a walk or a jog? In my own time I am a Hockey player by winter and a triathlete by summer. I’ve had various voluntary positions including business mentoring and currently I am the Welfare Officer for my hockey club. I enjoy ‘mucking in’ at local events in my home town and also raising money for charity via the odd crazy event here and there!

In 2015 I hope to achieve my first (and possibly only) Ironman distance triathlon in July. You can follow my progress as I attempt to blog my way to the start line and hopefully offer some useful insight on the experience- http://outingtooutlaw.tumblr.com/
