Vol­un­teers recog­nised

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

From coaches to ex­er­cise class lead­ers, there are many peo­ple in the Mata­mata com­mu­nity do­nat­ing their time to make sure sport and phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity op­tions are avail­able.

Vol­un­teers Aware­ness Week is June 19-25 and Sport Waikato wants to make sure those spe­cial peo­ple who do­nate their time re­ceive the ac­knowl­edg­ment over this week that they de­serve.

Sport Waikato District co­or­di­na­tor Ruth Stan­ley said vol­un­teers were es­sen­tial in the suc- cess of sport and phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity.

‘‘They give up their valu­able time to coach our chil­dren or man­age our sports teams and with­out them, we would not have sport.’’

Ms Stan­ley said nom­i­na­tion forms had been sent to clubs and schools seek­ing names of vol­un­teers. These vol­un­teers will be in­vited to func­tions dur­ing Vol­un­teers Aware­ness Week.

For a nom­i­na­tion form, con­tact Ruth on ruths@sport­waikato.org.nz, phone 027 4783 077 or 07 880 9088.
