REDHS is con­duct­ing ‘‘Vol­un­to­ber’’, its an­nual drive to re­cruit more vol­un­teers dur­ing Oc­to­ber.

This ini­tia­tive was in­tro­duced in 2016 and REDHS has suc­cess­fully in­ducted many new vol­un­teers.

Peo­ple choose to vol­un­teer for a va­ri­ety of rea­sons. For some it of­fers the chance to give some­thing back to the com­mu­nity or make a dif­fer­ence to the peo­ple around them. For oth­ers it pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity for per­sonal growth, or to feel a part of a team.

REDHS vol­un­teer co­or­di­na­tor Paula Grech is ex­cited to have the pro­gram run­ning again.

“REDHS is very for­tu­nate in that we have many vol­un­teers across the or­gan­i­sa­tion,” she said.

‘‘The com­mit­ment can be as lit­tle as an hour a week or as many days as they like, there’s al­ways some­thing to do and it can lift the spir­its of the vol­un­teers and res­i­dents.

‘‘It would be great to get some younger peo­ple on board to add a dif­fer­ent as­pect here, and it’s re­ally about what you get out of it as well as what you put in.’’

REDHS cur­rently has 72 vol­un­teers who are in­valu­able, and the ac­tiv­i­ties that oc­cur at REDHS could not get done with­out their help.

To raise your hand and be­come a vol­un­teer, con­tact Paula on 5484 4328 or pgrech@redhs.com.au.
