Pete Healey of Tewkesbury RFC 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 provides 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.
Pete has been involved for over 15 years as Coach, Junior and senior committee member, Safeguarding officer and Grounds coordinator. He does a lot of work behind the scene which includes securing a number of grants for the Club.
Pete said “I was very proud to be part of the presentation by the GRFU and to meet the rest of the worthy volunteers.”
Pete is one of a select group of rugby volunteers in the area who attended an awards event held at Mitsubishi Cheltenham on June the 14th. 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.
