Cricket stars thank volunteers

A selection of cricket volunteers will receive a phone call from Australian captain Michael Clarke as part of Cricket Australia’s Volunteer Recognition Day.

Everyone in Australian cricket, including players, is setting time aside to contact volunteers from cricket clubs and MILO in2CRICKET centres across the country to say thanks for their work.

An estimated 42,220 volunteers contribute close to seven million hours of service each year to the 4070 registered cricket clubs nationwide and Volunteer Recognition Day aims to connect with a volunteer at each of these clubs.

Coupled with the 1500 MILO in2CRICKET volunteers, cricket club volunteers contribute approximately $139,152,000 worth of voluntary service.

Cricket Australia CEO James Sutherland said the initiative is an opportunity to give volunteers their deserved recognition.

“We want to take the opportunity to thank the volunteers who help run our great game,” Mr Sutherland said.

“Their efforts are the foundation of cricket clubs across Australia and inspire the next generation of players and fans.

“I appreciate the important roles that volunteers play in the game whether it’s as a coach, team manager, umpire, scorer, in2CRICKET coordinator or making the afternoon tea.”

The Australian cricket workforce will take a break from their days on Thursday afternoon to make the calls. Volunteers will also have the opportunity to provide feedback about the issues facing their clubs during the calls.
