We are deeply saddened by the passing of the former chair of the Sports Chaplaincy NZ board, Martyn Norrie.
Martyn became a trustee for SCNZ in October 2013, soon after the charity began, and was appointed Chairman in September 2014, a role he held until December 2020 when he stepped down due to health reasons. Martyn’s expertise in governance and his extensive experience as an executive leader, provided SCNZ with a wealth of insights and understanding during the charity’s formative years. He steered the board through some important transitions that enabled SCNZ to become the primary provider of sports chaplains across Aotearoa New Zealand. Even after retiring, Martyn continued to support the board and CEO in a variety of ways and will be sorely missed by us all. The board of trustees, staff, and volunteers of SCNZ offer our love and condolences to Martyn’s wife, Margaret, and their dear family at this sad time.
Words fall short of expressing our grief for your loss, as we mourn with family and friends for this great loss. Please accept our condolences and may our prayers help comfort you. Please receive our heartfelt condolences.
Feel free to drop condolences messages and prayers for the family and friends of the deceased as it will go a very long way at this difficult time of theirs.
