Warwick Daily News - - SPORT -

VOL­UN­TEER AWARDS: Nom­i­na­tions are wel­come for the Con­damine Sports Club Vol­un­teer of the Year award.

The nom­i­nat­ing club for the vol­un­teer of the year re­ceives $500 from the Con­damine Sports Club.

For many years, the Merv Lan­caster Me­mo­rial Sports Vol­un­teer of the Year hon­oured many out­stand­ing vol­un­teers. There was then a break in the vol­un­teer awards be­fore it was re-started when the Con­damine Sports Club came up with the an­nual $500 win­ner’s prize to the nom­i­nat­ing club.

The Con­damine Sports Club also sup­plies tro­phies for the over­all win­ner and each of the nom­i­nees.

There have been five win­ners of the sports club vol­un­teer of the year award down the years.

Long-time hockey vol­un­teer Dar­ryl Gillam was the in­au­gu­ral win­ner in 2013, fol­lowed by War­wick Gym­nas­tic Club mem­ber and event sec­re­tary Dani Peel in 2014.

Tracey Sex­ton from Rid­ing for the Dis­abled won in 2015 and then Greg Carey from the War­wick Cow­boys Rugby League foot­ball club in 2016. Both had sec­ond sports, Sex­ton in event­ing and Carey in ath­let­ics.

In 2017, the win­ner was Kerri Fitch, a long-time vol­un­teer in lit­tle ath­let­ics, hockey and vol­ley­ball.
