By Kirra Livingstone

BEERWAH Glasshouse United Football Club’s secretary Amanda Milburn has been named the FQ Sunshine Coast’s volunteer of the year.

Amanda (pictured), has been BeeGees secretary for the past four years and said she was surprised but honoured by the acknowledgement.

“I’m sure there are many others on the Sunshine Coast that have done a lot of things as well but… at the end of the day it actually is really nice to be recognised for something that you just do,” she said.

As for why she believes she was picked as volunteer of the year, Milburn said she helped with many changes in the FQ Sunshine Coast Association and feels a personal connection to the club.

“I nearly know every player or every player’s parents in our club, and we have 400 players, I feel like a have a personal connection with everyone,” she said.

“I’m actively involved, and I think most people would know me from the club.”
