Avril Pearce of West Park Leeds RUFC nominated for Mitsubishi Motors
Volunteer of the Year Awards
Avril Pearce of West Park Leeds RUFC has been nominated for the Mitsubishi Motors Volunteer of the Year Awards for their work as a rugby volunteer and their dedication to the game.
The awards are part of the Mitsubishi Motors Volunteer Recognition Programme which provide grassroots rugby clubs and the rugby community with opportunities to recognise and reward the volunteers who make up such an integral part of the game.
Avril joined the club in 1984 and has now done 31 years of unbroken service across a wide variety of roles, initially on the Senior Committee as Assistant Treasurer and now as Age Grade Chair.
Avril is one of a select group of rugby volunteers in the area who is invited to attend an awards event to be held at Luscombe Mitsubishi in Hunslet. At this event, one volunteer will be announced as a Volunteer of the Year finalist – earning them a place at the Mitsubishi Motors Volunteer of the Year Awards night at Twickenham Stadium on Friday 7 September 2018. Three overall winners will be announced on the evening and each one will receive a Mitsubishi car for a year as a thank you for their continued support of the game.
As well as the Mitsubishi Motors Volunteer of the Year Awards, the programme offers a number of opportunities to say thank you to the thousands of volunteers who give back to grassroots rugby, week in, week out.
