Capital Chemist have joined forces with Capital Football in 2019 to recognise and reward volunteers for their immense contribution to the sport in Canberra.
Each month, members of the football community can nominate a volunteer from a club who they believe makes an invaluable contribution to football in our region.
With the local football community consisting of thousands of volunteers, it is important to acknowledge the contribution they make in helping to keep football moving each season.
The winner of each month in the Capital Chemist Volunteer of the Year will be presented with a prize at their local Capital Chemist store with the opportunity to join the Capital Chemist loyalty program and receive bonus loyalty points to kick off the relationship.
Capital Football’s Head of Commercial Megan Salic thanked Capital Chemist for their partnership and reiterated the impact of volunteers on our sport.
“Every week there are thousands of volunteers helping out at clubs across all levels of football, and it is important we recognise what they do on such a regular basis,” Salic said.
“Thank you to Capital Chemist for partnering with us and helping to reward those who work so hard in their own time to improve our sport and foster a great environment for our youngsters.”
Capital Chemist’s Melita Flynn, Community Programme Manager, said the company is excited to launch the partnership and support volunteers in the community.
“Capital Chemist are proud to partner and support Capital Football in recognising the importance of volunteers, with the Capital Chemist Volunteer of the Year.”
“It is estimated that there are between 5000-6000 volunteers who commit their free time to help run football in the ACT and surrounds.
“This partnership will allow Capital Chemist to be a part of the wider football community and Capital Football to recognise those who selflessly give up their time.”
All winners will be invited to the 2019 Capital Football Awards night where the Capital Chemist Volunteer of the Year will be announced.
