Wanneroo's Lorraine Elliss named Falcons District 'Sunday Times Volunteer of the Year'

Monday, August 14, 2017 - 1:51 PM

Lorraine Elliss’ time and effort to football cannot be measured, nor can words truly reflect how much she has put in during her time with the Wanneroo Amateru Football Club. 

Lorraines involvement with the Wanneroo Amateru Football Club started in the `90s when her husband who was involved in the club rocked up at home one day with the club books, plopped them on the table and said “guess what you are the treasurer”.

20 Years on, her official role on the committee of Wanneroo Amateur Football Club is club Treasurer but her commitment goes beyond that. This season Lorraine not only has the club finances under control, she has regularly dealt with the local council about club projects, assisted in the clubs major revenue stream in the bar, and completes various administration roles.

Lorraine has seen many people at the club come and go, but rarely would people know who Lorraine is. Her work behind the scenes has been paramount in maintaining the clubs future and if it was not for the hard work of Lorraine Elliss who knows if Wanneroo Amateur Football Club would been in the position it is today.

Every club has a treasurer but not every club has a Lorraine Ellis. 

Lorraine will attend the 2017 Sandover Medal Count on Monday 18th September where she has progress to the WA Final of the 2017 Sunday Times WA Football Volunteer of the Year. She will join District Volunteers on Friday 22nd September at the 2017 District Football Awards of Excellence joining a strong band of volunteers to be awarded with Volunteer Excellence Awards. 

2017 Volunteer Excellence Award winners joining Lorraine on the 22nd September include:

Adam Dyer from Whitford Amateur Football Club

Ray Garcia from the West Perth Football Club

& Binnie Greco from the Quinns DIstricts Junior Football Club.
