Volunteer of the Year

Chris Mitchell – Reigate Priory Hockey Club

(Runner-Up: Mike Griffin – Merstham Cricket Club)

At Reigate Priory Hockey Club Chris has been a long-standing volunteer, official, organiser, umpire, coach, player and committee member. He has been head of girls colts and mini colts for a number of years where the club has been seen to thrive and increase the number of colts developing into playing members in the adult sides. During the week he will take several colts’ training sessions, umpire or coach on a Sunday, and organise many other related things during the week. He also sits on the club committee. He has continued to show enthusiasm despite injecting so much time and passion over the years and even again this year as the club starts another season. He defines the meaning of a club volunteer.Our warmest thanks to Reigate & Banstead Borough Council for sponsoring this award.
