As Lacrosse comes out of the lock down and fixtures, albeit limited are back it seems only right to look back on the past year and highlight the amazing work done by the NHS staff during the Pandemic.
Across the country there are medical practitioners who are part of our Lacrosse family that have been on the front line during the crisis, working with patients and families, utterly professional and with great fortitude.
At Bath LC we have our very own “man at the front” in the form of Club treasurer and first team defender Laurence Dawson Smith.
Laurence is a Senior Physiotherapist in the intensive care unit at Southmead Hospital, Bristol, and is directly involved with the treatment of COVID affected patients. Helping with rehabilitation after long periods of illness with the virus.
A graduate of Manchester Metropolitan University; Laurence has been with Bath LC for 7 years. During that time, he not only played Lacrosse (converting from Midfield to Long pole about 3 years ago) and been an integral member of the club committee as treasurer, but has managed to find the time to get married to the wonderfully patient Elleni and become father of two young boys, James (3) and John (1)
Laurence is pretty humble about his vital work, and, like all the NHS staff, he just doesn’t want a fuss and plays down the risk his work brings to himself.
But Bath LC want to make a fuss:
Thank you, Laurence, thank you for all your hard work and dedication, see you on the Lacrosse field soon.
