"Jackie has worked hard to generate income into our club, to try and improve the look and feel of the club and allow us to purchase much needed equipment.
"She produced a sponsorship package including different ways businesses could get involved with the club, including banner advertising, scorehut sponsorship, entrance sign sponsorship, team sponsorship and others. She contacted many businesses and managed to get both adult and youth sponsors, eight banner sponsors, entrance sign and scorehut sponsors as well as a few games sponsors.
"These all generated income for us and at the same time created new relationships with local businesses. This enabled us to have a uniformed look for our teams and created a pride in their attitude of being part of a team and club. She also researched grants that the club could apply for and again created income through these and in addition supported our new ladies softball team by getting income for them to be able to buy their basic equipment.
"She created a list of work to be done around the club in the form of DIY projects, painting etc. and through extra income raised bought materials and then communicated to all our members for volunteers.
"She coordinated our first ladies softball festival and again made sure we had volunteers for every task and ran the bar throughout and as a result we had an amazing day with BBQ, music and fun for everyone and generated income for us. For all of these events Jackie is very conscious of being Covid safe and provides a risk assessment for all the things she does, so we know we are as safe as we can be.
"The results of Jackie's hard work have given us a chance to become a better club for all our members and provide a safe place for them to enjoy."
