Celebrating Paddling Volunteers: Mark Bretag

May 16th – 22nd is National Volunteer Week, and PaddleNSW is excited to celebrate a range of volunteers from across our paddling community. These are the people that go above and beyond, yet often behind the scenes, to ensure the smooth running of events, the beauty of our waterways and the continuity of our clubs. If there’s a volunteer you’d like to see featured, email admin@paddlensw.org.au.

Newy Paddlers have many volunteers but Mark Bretag stands out as a member that is always there. Mark not only covers an administrative role within the club but also contributes in so many ways at all levels within the club and its events.

From cooking club BBQ’s to meeting with federal politicians to discuss our clubs needs, Mark is always on hand. The club would not run without his outstanding efforts. The Orange Army salutes you Mark, great person, great contributor, great volunteer.
