The Launceston Football Club would like to congratulate Shane Sheppard who won the Outstanding Achievement Award (Sports and Recreation Category) at the recent West Tamar Council Volunteer Recognition Awards.

Shane is also our Director of TSL Football and his sons: Corey, Thomas and Ryan all play here at the Launceston Football Club.

Fantastic effort Shane, well done and many thanks for all your help so far throughout the years and years to come!

  • Any individual actively involved in voluntarily servicing the West Tamar community (excluding those primarily involved in political and/or lobbying activities) during the past two years or more may be nominated.
  • Previous award winners are ineligible to be re-nominated.

Outstanding Achievement Awards are called for in the categories of:

  • Our Community (youth, family, seniors, disability etc)
  • Environment
  • Sport and Recreation
  • Community Development, Safety and Emergency Services
  • Arts & Culture

Selection criteria

The selection criteria are designed to provide the judging panel with important information about the nominee. By addressing each criterion, you will assist the judges in recognising what the nominee has contributed to their organisation/community as well as how this individual stands out from the rest. Please include examples of the nominee’s work.  

We would also like to congratulate Launceston Football Clubs very own:  Denise Bott, David Petterwood, Darlene Petterwood, Scott Glanville & Lindy Conway – who all received Hours of Service certificates for all their hard work they have put in with their voluntary work in the West Tamar Community.

Hours of Service Certificate – Individual Volunteer

Individuals who have provided 100, 500, 1000 or 5000 hours of voluntary service to the West Tamar community are presented with a certificate recognising their contribution.  Council understands most organisations do not record their volunteers’ time; therefore, an estimate will suffice (e.g. 2 hours per week over a year is approximately 100 hours).

  • Denise Bott  -100 Hours
  • David Petterwood – 500 hours
  • Darlene Petterwood – 500 hours
  • Scott Glanville – 500 hours
  • Lindy Conway – 500 hours 

Once again a massive congratulations to Shane, Denise, David, Darlene, Scott and Lindy for being honoured for all their fantastic work around the community and the LFC.
