Greytown Junior Football Club – Lotto Sport Makers Good Practice Recognition
Greytown Junior Football Club has recently been recognised by Sport Wellington as showing good practice as they progress the alignment of their structure and culture to volunteering.
This recognition is part of the ‘Thank a Sport Maker’ campaign; a partnership with the Lotto Volunteer Foundation and Sport New Zealand that will see the greater Wellington region sharing in over $1 million of quality clothing and sports gear to be awarded to Sport Makers throughout New Zealand over the next three years.
Sport Wellington celebrates good practice at a local or regional level by rewarding organisations who have demonstrated processes, policies and culture that support sustainability and growth – with a particular focus on volunteer (or “Sport Makers”) management. Sports organisations can access volunteer management resources and templates at http://www.lottovolunteers.co.nz/resources.html.
Greytown Junior Football Club has recently attained the New Zealand Football Quality Club Mark (QCM) 1 star Developing Club Status. Jamie Milne, Sport Development Advisor from Sport Wellington says “Greytown JFC is the 1st rural football club in NZ to attain the achievement of the QCM 1star. This is significant, and indicates that the QCM can be achieved by both urban and rural clubs. This club has good support structures in place for its volunteers, and as a smaller community the volunteers help each other out regularly. It is great to see and I am delighted for them.” Greytown Juniors is the fourth Wellington club and thirteenth club nationally to be accredited in NZ Football QCM 1 star status.
Sport Wellington congratulates Greytown Junior Football Club on its work in the community and through the investment from the Lotto Volunteer Foundation and Sport New Zealand is providing the club with a $1,000 worth of ‘Sport Makers’ sporting goods.
People can show their appreciation for the Sport Makers who blow a whistle, coach, balance the books or help cook the sausages for the fundraising BBQ, by sending a thank you e-card available at lottovolunteers.co.nz. Every nomination is in the draw to win a $500 merchandise voucher.
