WA's Margie Oldfield Named Volunteer Of The Year
27 April 2017  
 
The heart and soul of Australian Cricket was celebrated last night at the inaugural A Sport for All Community Cricket Awards held at the MCG.
 
The event honoured the remarkable work being done within the Australian cricket community by individuals, clubs and associations. Hundreds of nominations were received from all over Australia, with the two finalists in each of the 12 categories flown to Melbourne to attend the dinner.
 
A huge congratulations goes to Margie Oldfield from the Wembley Districts Junior Cricket Club, who took out the prize for Volunteer of the Year for her dedication to creating a culture at her club that opened the door to a huge increase in the number of girls playing cricket.
 
Margie's story will be immortalised in a new interactive display at Bradman Museum in Bowral NSW. The display will be updated annually to celebrate the winner of the Volunteer of the Year as an acknowledgment of their contribution to cricket.
 
"Volunteers are the lifeblood of our wonderful sport and we are thrilled that we can acknowledge the work of people like Margie is such a meaningful way thanks to this fantastic initiative at the Bradman Museum,” said Cricket Australia CEO Mr James Sutherland.
