Volunteers of the Month

The Gold Coast Volunteer of the months for February is Francis Nairn, Francis is heavily involved within the Gold Coast Dolphins women’s junior set up, as well as the South Coast Schools Sports set up.
Francis has been doing a fantastic job in creating an opportunity for girls to play cricket, through club and school pathways which has been a fantastic addition to cricket on the Gold Coast.
In the first season of the U15s women’s grade competition, the Gold Coast team won the competition with Francis as coach. The girls were raving about the fantastic job he has done over this season.
Congratulations to Francis on the recognition!

The SEQ Volunteer of the Month for February is our very special T20 Blast Coordinator - Dorothy Armstrong. Dorothy has again done a fantastic job organising and running the Ipswich T20 Blast hub this season. Her enthusiasm has caught on and as a result we have seen the program go from strength to strength. She has found and encouraged lots of new volunteers and helped to link the program to the next step in the cricketing pathway. A big thanks to Dorothy for all her hard work!
