Red Star Cricket thanked by Lotto Sport Makers

Red Star Cricket thanked by Lotto Sport Makers

The Red Star Cricket club are in the spotlight again, being recognised as part of the regional Lotto Sport Makers campaign for the month of May.

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. Red Star Cricket has made dramatic improvements to their volunteer approach over the past 18 months through the hard work of those on the club committee to earn this accolade.

Community Sport Advisor Mark Curr says “Basically, this year we have seen Red Star write a plan, work to their plan and reap the rewards, it is important that we have clubs like Red Star getting behind their volunteers”.

Junior club captain Simon Roseingrave has been confirmed as a finalist in the volunteer category of The Dominion Post Wellington Sportsperson of the Year awards, organised by Sport Wellington. Simon is at the vanguard of these efforts. As junior club captain, Simon has played a major role in ensuring that all club volunteers are well-briefed, supported and adequately resourced. Simon has spent a great deal of time establishing partnerships that continue to grow the clubs junior section.

The Wairarapa Cricket Association is delighted with the progress of Red Star. Cricket development officer Sammy Curtis says “What is great about Red Star is that they are firmly focused upon creating opportunities and having fun--clearly all of the club volunteers buy in to this and it's growing the club".

The impact of Simon's work has been remarkable and improvements to the volunteer environment at Red Star Cricket continue to be consistent, as evidenced by their 100% retention of coaches plus 3 new coaches. This club are now at the brink of best-practice where volunteerism is concerned and deserve to be recognised as leaders in this area.

The club will receive $1000 worth of ‘Sport Makers’ merchandise as part of the campaign.
