Netball New Zealand is delighted to announce that Cadbury has come on board as our Official Volunteer Partner. Cadbury is super passionate about the powerful role that grass roots sports plays in our community and together we want to ensure that the future of Netball remains strong. Our partnership is built to recognise, reward, inspire and recruit new volunteers to our sport by shining a light on those netball volunteer champions who have helped build and nurture our netball communities and participants.
That’s why over National Volunteers Week (16-22 June) we kickstarted an initiative to send Cadbury Thank You Packs to all of our Netball Centres across the country, enabling members to thank their volunteers, including coaches, umpires and team managers.
In addition, NNZ have employed a Volunteer Advocacy Coordinator (VAC) to manage the Volunteer Programme, starting with the development of a robust strategy for our Centres. If you would like to get a hold of our VAC, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
This is just the start of some exciting opportunities to recognise and empower the people who tirelessly put time and effort into our game. Other initiatives include thanks activations at Centres, Volunteer of the Month Awards and the National Volunteer of the Year Awards in October. We’ll soon be calling for nominations, so please have a think about who to nominate from your Centre.
We are so excited about Cadbury coming on board as our Official Volunteer Partner and giving our Centres the opportunity to Thank our Volunteers.
