Club volunteers recognised

November 11, 2019

Club volunteers from across the region were acknowledged at the 2019 Auckland Rugby League Club Volunteers of the Year Luncheon last Sunday.

Held at the Edinburgh Castle in Auckland, recipients were selected by their clubs and received recognition for their services in 2019.

ARL special projects manager Selwyn Pearson said it’s always a special event.

“To hold an event like this gives us an opportunity to recognise how much effort our volunteers put into our great game of grassroots rugby league,” Pearson said.

“The fact that the recipients have been chosen by their peers also adds to the occasion.

“We couldn’t thank everyone enough for their contribution this season.”
