ARL thanks loyal volunteers

Auckland Rugby League (ARL) held their annual Volunteer’s Recognition Awards at the Mount Richmond Hotel on Sunday October 15, to recognise the devoted volunteers who willingly and continuously give their time to support rugby league.
Sir Peter Leitch QSM – who inspired the conception of the volunteer awards five years ago – was present to commend all those who continue to give to the great game.
Rugby league clubs from across Auckland each nominated a loyal volunteer, to acknowledge their hard work and efforts towards their club.
Host and Special Projects Manager, Selwyn Pearson, said “The recipients are selected by their own clubs, which is very significant because they are being chosen by their peers as their clubs stand-out and special voluntary person.”
The local Club Volunteer of the Year Nominees were: Partners, Tammy Potini and Nathan Poroa from Pukekohe Pythons Rugby League (photo unavailable). Their club nominated them for their contribution as committee members, coaches and managers. The couple have also taken up the challenge of project managing the rebuild of the club’s facilities after vandals caused damage earlier this year.
Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
