Volunteer of the Month — January

Spon­sors Edith Cow­an Uni­ver­si­ty are sup­port­ing a Vol­un­teer of the Month recog­ni­tion ini­tia­tive with our Club … Jan­u­ary stars are: Rob McGre­gor, Julie Rap­ley and Sandy Clarke.

Rob McGre­gor – Rob has been a stal­wart vol­un­teer on our beach for many, many years work­ing tire­less­ly in our beach set up crew, turn­ing up week in week out regard­less of the weath­er on a Sun­day morn­ing to pre­pare the beach for club day.  With­out vol­un­teers like Rob our club day sim­ply could not go ahead.

He has also been a reg­u­lar vol­un­teer as bar staff, for what seems like for­ev­er- and is now one of our reg­is­tered Man­agers, which helps sup­port the club’s social events.

Julie Rap­ley – The organ­i­sa­tion of the Nip­pers Car­ni­val on 20th Jan­u­ary was an absolute­ly mam­moth task which Julie approached with her usu­al infec­tious enthu­si­asm and great atten­tion to detail. The effort and hours involved in coor­di­nat­ing the Event Man­age­ment Plan and pulling togeth­er the huge team of vol­un­teers required for every aspect of the car­ni­val, was absolute­ly enor­mous.

Sandy Clarke – Sandy was instru­men­tal in secur­ing for Mul­laloo the inau­gur­al “club run” car­ni­val with SLSWA. We were the guinea pigs for a new mod­el for organ­is­ing car­ni­vals, in which indi­vid­ual clubs will take respon­si­bil­i­ty for all aspects of run­ning car­ni­vals and in return for their efforts, receive the com­peti­tor entry fees.

Sandy demon­strat­ed an amaz­ing lev­el of com­mit­ment, togeth­er with Julie and a host of oth­er vol­un­teers, to pull togeth­er a high­ly suc­cess­ful event ‚which has reaped great ben­e­fit to the club and demon­strat­ed that the new mod­el can work.
