Volunteer Recognition

In partnership with Sport New Zealand, we show appreciation for Sport Makers across the Canterbury West Coast region.

Over 750,000 sport volunteers contribute over 50 million voluntary hours a year to sport in New Zealand.

We're calling them Sport Makers, because they make sport happen.

Through the Lotto Volunteer Foundation, Sport Canterbury also recognises a volunteer community coach each month. The Lotto Coach of the Month is awarded with a gift for their contribution to the community, club or school they support as a volunteer.

The coaches recognised have been nominated by their club members or school staff. They have been nominated for going 'beyond the call of duty' and giving young people a fantastic experience of participating in sport.

Lotto Coach of the Month award recipients receive a $250 voucher for Lotto merchandise in recognition of their special efforts.

Nominate a Lotto Volunteer Sport Maker in your region today!
