Gorst Rural prides itself on being an integral part of local life- not only providing important services for primary producers but employing locals and supporting other local businesses. A large proportion of our revenue goes back into the business and local community- through sponsorship of our kindergartens, schools, sporting clubs, festivals, hospital and like charities- all part of being in a small community.

If you would like to apply for sponsorship for your event or organisation, please email admin@gortrural.com.au.

Peter Gorst Volunteer of the Year Award

In collaboration with the MDFL & MDNA we are coordinating the “Peter Gorst Volunteer of the Year” award again in 2020. This award recognises those people in our community who go above and beyond their commitment to our Football & Netball clubs week in week out and make significant contributions, without them our clubs would not be what they are today. Each month the clubs are encouraged to nominate a person they think is deserving of this recognition. Monthly winners receive a Gorst Rural Voucher and then go into the running to win the Volunteer of the Year Award

To nominate a worthy volunteer, please download the form below.
