The hard work of one of Stamford Rugby Club’s army of volunteers has been recognised with the newly launched NLD Volunteer of the Quarter. It is a fitting reward for Ian, who has worked tirelessly for the benefit of Stamford RUFC, from coaching the club’s Colts team to running the line at matches, and even assisting with the maintenance of the pitches. He was presented with his award before the weekend’s Colts match against Sleaford.
Darren Dolby, the NLD’s Lincolnshire Club Volunteer Coordinator, presented Ian with his award. He said: “Ian typifies the type of grass roots volunteer that all clubs rely on, ensuring that clubs function effectively, week in, week out.”
Ian was nominated by a large number of club members who wanted to express their gratitude for all of the hard work he puts in behind the scenes and will enjoy some vouchers to say thank you for his hard work at the club.
