England Rugby and Mitsubishi Motors have developed the Mitsubishi Motors Volunteer Recognition Programme to provide grassroots rugby clubs with opportunities to recognise and reward the volunteers who make up an integral part of the game. You can access information about this award here.
Volunteers are essential to the success and sustainability of rugby clubs and their associated activities. This is demonstrated by the time, willingness and commitment that volunteers dedicate to the game, from coaches and referees to committee members, parent helpers and many more.
Every year the Kent County RFU is proud to recognise these dedicated and selfless volunteers from across our grassroots clubs, who are nominated by their peers for going above and beyond in their activities to support the game that we love.
For the 2019-2020 season with the emergence of the Worldwide pandemic our initial plans to celebrate these volunteers was put on an unexpected hold, until a time when we could meet and reward them in a safe and appropriate manner. Whilst our plans for a celebration evening are temporarily paused, as time has passed, we have decided that it is more important than ever to announce our successful award nominees and category winners so their clubs and the County can collectively celebrate and appreciate their efforts. Distribution of the awards and certificates will be made to clubs in the forthcoming weeks, with an evening planned hopefully later in the Summer restrictions permitting.
But in the meantime, the KCRFU is pleased to announce the successful nominees and winners for the 2019/2020 season on the link below:
Kent County RFU congratulates and thanks all of the nominees and winners for their dedication and hard work in supporting Rugby and their communities within Kent and we all look forward to a time where we can meet in the clubhouse, on the side-lines or on the pitch.
