The Volunteer of the Moment (VotM) programme is an instant recognition and reward for volunteers. It compliments the established regional and national Goalden Globe process and Pass on Your Passion (PoYP) scheme.
Volunteers are the backbone of netball and as we build up to the Netball World Cup in 2019, England Netball will be increasingly supporting our volunteers and recognising the fantastic work they do. It’s a way of saying a huge thank you to all our netball volunteers across the country. We really couldn’t do it without you!
Volunteer of the Moment is used to recognise and reward volunteers of any age, in any role or environment who have made a significant contribution to the development of netball.
A VotM reward can be given to a volunteer who has really gone above and beyond and been a netball star. This could be for work on a single occasion (e.g. at a training session or event) or ongoing commitment to a role they’ve carried out over a period of time.
England Netball staff, Regional Management Board and County Committee members can select volunteers to receive the award. Winners will be rewarded with an ‘I Make the Game’ T-shirt and lanyard as a small appreciation for the work they do in making netball happen.
If you know a volunteer who you think should be recognised for their work please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Maureen Clark- Volunteer of the Moment- July 2017
This recognition is for Maureen’s work making the London and South East Regional Festival 2017 at Crystal Palace National Sports Centre on the 1st July such a success. Maureen worked tirelessly to make sure the event ran smoothly. She went above and beyond her role as Regional Chair and was involved in the organisation, planning and detail of the day writing more emails and letters than can be remembered! It was Maureen’s efforts that secured an NPL highlight game between Surrey Storm and Wasps which was enjoyed by the 400 strong audience of spectators. She always makes sure that other volunteer’s contributions are acknowledged and appreciated and this is to show that her efforts are also noticed and appreciated.
