Photographer earns our fifth Volunteer of Week award

posted in: News, Sponsors, Volunteers

For five years, Louis Roberts has been on the sidelines, rain or shine, helping Cambridge FC as our club’s official photographer.

Having started with little experience, he saved to buy camera equipment and keenly went about learning his craft with help from established football photographers Grant Stantiall (Hamilton) and Enzo Giordani (Auckland).

As a volunteer, Roberts puts in hours of effort, supplying photographs to the club’s website, matchday magazine RED and for local and regional newspapers. He travels to away games when he can.

He’s the fifth winner of our Onyx Cambridge-sponsored Volunteer of the Week award.

He receives a $50 voucher from our partner Onyx Cambridge.

Cambridge’s favourite eatery will help celebrate our deserving volunteers with a weekly prize of a $50 voucher to spend at Onyx Cambridge in Alpha St.

The award is a terrific way for us to celebrate those who keep our club running all year and to show them what Onyx Cambridge offers its customers.

In all, 20 volunteers will benefit during the season and we’re now seeking nominations for worthy recipients.
