Volunteer of the Month

To show our appreciation of our volunteers and to recognise their commitment to our club, we are introducing a monthly award. 

How it works

When you help out the club you will score a ‘ticket’ in the volunteer draw. The more times you volunteer, the more times your name will be put into the pool. The volunteer of the month pool will be reset at the end of each winter and summer season.

Every month we will randomly draw a volunteer from the pool of volunteers for the season. The volunteer of the month will receive a prize which includes an item of merchandise (e.g. hat, beanie or socks) and a voucher for coffee and cake at The Social Sutra, Shop 1/169 Watton St, Werribee.

At the end of the year all volunteers, across the winter and summer seasons, will go in to a draw for a larger prize. 

Volunteering includes roles such as filling AV club helper duties, helping out at fundraising events, photography for the club at events and bringing the club tents to XCR events.

The Jaimangal family are our volunteers of the month for November 2019.

Ticket 12 was drawn which was for the Jaimangal's completing club duties at AVSL Round 1 held at Aberfeldie. The Jaimangal's come from Werribee Little Athletics with Taleisha and Jalen now competing for Western Athletics in Stu Macaulay's squad. You'll find Taleisha and Jalen sprinting over distances from 100m to 800m!

Parent's Michael and Susan and the family have been regular helpers over the season, helping with club duties on at least three occasions at Aberfeldie and Werribee.

Glenn Evans is our volunteer of the month for October.

Ticket 31 was drawn which was for Glenn completing club duties at AVSL Round 3 held at Aberfeldie. Not surprising to see Glenn's name drawn, he's always happy to help whether it's club duties, or setting up/packing up both for shield events or during the winter season. Notably just 6 days prior to this Glenn had completed his debut marathon at Melbourne Marathon, in a very respectable time of 3:39:17!

Peter Cashin was drawn as volunteer of the month for September.

Ticket 2 was drawn which was for Peter completing the AV club helper role at the XCR Sandown Relays. Peter has stepped into the AV Helper role 4 times during the season. This was at Jells Park, Sandown, Burnley and the Tan Relays. Sandown was the most memorable for me, with Peter sitting out on the back straight offering encouragement! Peter also helped out at the Bunnings BBQ giving him 5 entries in the volunteer prize draw.
