Sport Aberdeen has launched a new volunteer recognition initiative, to show appreciation to its volunteers and the dedication that they show to the organisation.

Volunteers are the backbone of Sport Aberdeen and the organisation is honoured to have hundreds of amazing volunteers who generously share their time, skills and experience to help Sport Aberdeen thrive in creating opportunities, inspiring people and changing lives.

The new Volunteer of the Month initiative - launched in conjunction with National Volunteer Week - will recognise an individual, team or group of volunteers each month, who have done something special or have really gone the extra mile. 

Nickie Scorgie, Head of Human Resources and Organisational Development at Sport Aberdeen, is delighted to be introducing this initiative, stating:

“We actively recognise and celebrate outstanding achievements. The ‘Volunteer of the Month’ scheme will allow us to celebrate volunteer successes, recognise outstanding contributions and those who go that bit extra”

Alistair Robertson, Sport Aberdeen Managing Director, said:

"I simply cannot overstate the importance volunteers play in allowing Sport Aberdeen to achieve it’s aim of creating opportunities, inspiring people and changing lives.

"These volunteers are very often the people who are working directly within the communities in which we operate.

"We have found that our Employee of the Month initiative has been a great way to build moral and recognise the efforts of our staff and it’s only right that this same attention is given to our hard-working team of volunteers.”
