Sports Club Volunteers - Thank you from Sports Central
Sports clubs not only provide physical activity, but allow people feel more socially connected and help build community.
To those volunteering in committee member roles through to coaches, team managers and scorers, thank you for your time and effort throughout 2013.
We’re proud to help clubs in the Central Highlands be a good place to be… for more information.
