Cricket Tasmania is proud to have players apart of its Female Program supporting Lifeline Tasmania as part of their personal development activities.
The initiatives, established through Volunteering Tasmania, will begin with players painting Lifeline Tasmania’s retail store on Argyle Street in Hobart’s CBD today, one day before they travel to Brisbane to prepare for their WNCL season opener.
Further initiatives planned for throughout the summer include players volunteering in Lifeline’s warehouse, assisting with sorting through donations, before a roster system will be established and see players volunteer in Lifeline’s shop.
“The playing group is really excited to be a part of this opportunity with Lifeline, they’re a really grounded group who are passionate about what they can do for the Tasmanian community,” said Cricket Tasmania’s Female Player Development Manager, Emma Doherty.
“As much as their focus has been on preparing for their summer ahead as athletes, they’re always looking to further their development off the field and that’s what these initiatives are all about.
“I’m sure they’ll each get a lot out of being involved.”
“At Lifeline Tasmania, our Volunteers are the backbone of our organisation and play a vital role in suicide awareness and prevention throughout Tasmania, ” said Lifeline Tasmania CEO Debbie Evans.
“We’re grateful of the support of Cricket Tasmania, who join more than 400 Tasmanians who volunteer for us throughout the State.”
“Volunteering Tasmania is thrilled to have connected our members, Lifeline and Cricket Tasmania for this volunteering project,” said Volunteering Tasmania Deputy CEO Venéy Hiller.
“The collaboration is a leading example of people working together to achieve positive outcomes not only for the organisations, but also for the volunteers and the community.”
