Nathan Martin joins Dunn in volunteer awards

Wimmera Football Netball League’s volunteer of the month is Nathan Martin from Horsham Saints.

As a volunteer overall club, club-project and club-duty leader, Mr Martin is an integral part of the Saints, one of the core people responsible for running a large ‘vibrant’ organisation.

Mr Martin has taken on a variety of roles including club president, grants officer, COVID-19 marshal and joint bar manager and also oversees duty rosters, welfare checks on club players and members and works closely with the club’s netball director to help where needed.

He also takes on clean-up duties after home games and training nights and ensures the club’s social-media communications are up to date so members remain informed about club projects, policies and directions.

Mr Martin, as May nominee, joins April nominee and Ararat club trainer Jenny Dunn.

The league will announce five monthly winners during the season and invite them to a Toohey and Hatcher medal presentation night, where officials will announce ‘volunteer of the year’.

Morrow Motor Group is sponsoring the award and will provide $100 to monthly winners and $500 for the overall winner. 

An independent panel will choose the monthly and annual winners.

Anyone can nominate people for the awards and nominees must be volunteers of Wimmera league clubs.

People can email nominations to and include a brief outline of the person’s contribution to their club as well as a photograph.
