Thanking volunteers on International Volunteer Day

WA Cricket proudly celebrates International Volunteer Day as a way of acknowledging the tremendous work our hard-working volunteers undertake in and out of cricket season.

Volunteers are the lifeblood of community cricket and perform pivotal roles throughout all aspects of Clubs and Associations right across the State.

This year, the theme of International Volunteer Day is ‘If Everyone Did’ which challenges us to think that if everyone volunteered, the world would be a better place and to imagine the positive impact this collective effort would have on our communities.

WA Cricket celebrates volunteers each year with the annual WA Community Cricket Awards which recognise the efforts of those who generously give so much to their clubs across 16 award categories covering metropolitan and regional areas.

We also award Volunteer of the Month and Volunteer of the Match during the season and give the winners recognition via the WA Cricket website and WA Community Cricket eNews.

WA Cricket General Manager of Community Cricket Jo Davies says International Volunteer Day is a perfect reminder of how vital volunteers are to cricket across the state and how important it is for us to let them know how much they are appreciated.

“We know how important volunteers are at a community level and we truly appreciate the many hours of work and dedication they put into their clubs to provide an unforgettable experience for others,” she said.

“We strive to ensure our volunteers know how valued and integral they are not only on International Volunteer Day, but right throughout the year.

“I would like to extend a sincere thanks to our loyal volunteers from right across the state and wish them well as we continue with our summer of cricket.”
