Vol­un­teer recog­ni­tion

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

Vol­un­teers are the lifeblood of any or­gan­i­sa­tion. They are the key part of the suc­cess or oth­er­wise of our clubs and as­so­ci­a­tions and they do their jobs with­out fuss or fan­fare, with recog­ni­tion fur­thest from their minds.

We know that vol­un­teerism is chang­ing in the 21st Cen­tury.

Vol­un­teers want to know ex­actly what they are in for be­fore mak­ing a com­mit­ment.

Suc­cess­ful clubs are able to cater for this change with clearly de­fined role de­scrip­tions in or­der to make the task of re­cruit­ing and re­tain­ing vol­un­teers that much eas­ier.

While our vol­un­teers do not seek recog­ni­tion, when the op­por­tu­nity arises clubs should be taking this chance to make their vol­un­teers feel good about the work they do and know the club is sup­port­ing them in every way.

Vol­ley­ball Hor­sham mem­bers Kara John­son and Tim Pop­ple are per­fect ex­am­ples of vol­un­teers who go about their busi­ness with a min­i­mum of fuss, and gain the re­spect of those they give their time so freely, to en­sure they are en­joy­ing what they are do­ing.

Both won recog­ni­tion at a re­cent Vol­ley­ball Vic­to­ria an­nual meet­ing when they were awarded Vol­un­teer Achieve­ment Awards for their sup­port to Vol­ley­ball Hor­sham.

What makes Tim and Kara’s ef­forts all the more spe­cial is they are still ac­tive play­ers in the as­so­ci­a­tion, as well as academy coaches and executive com­mit­tee mem­bers.

It was a no brainer to nom­i­nate both of them for their awards be­cause of their tire­less sup­port and work they do for the as­so­ci­a­tion right across the board. It is vol­un­teers such as Tim and Kara who make Vol­ley­ball Hor­sham as strong as what it is to­day, and on be­half of ev­ery­one as­so­ci­ated with vol­ley­ball we thank them.

AWARDS: Vol­ley­ball Hor­sham’s Kara John­son and Tim Pop­ple.
