East Coast Bays honours Wendy Skeath with their 40th Life Member award

Auckland club East Coast Bays have recognised long-serving volunteer Wendy Skeath with their 40th Life Member award.

She has contributed nearly half a century of passion and dedication, the club says, since she first became involved in 1977.

“Wendy’s impact on our club is immeasurable — a maestro with a needle and thread, guardian of spotless playing kits, orchestrator of the gear room symphony, and a force to be reckoned with during working bees,” the club said.

“Her tireless efforts extend from the kitchen to the bar, from organising functions to crafting feasts fit for champions (our men’s first team).

“And let’s not forget the legendary ‘Wendy’s pulled pork,’ a taste sensation that has become a cherished hallmark at club events.

“What makes Wendy’s contributions truly extraordinary? She does it all as a dedicated volunteer.”
