Isis Town and Country - - News -

WITH only two days un­til the Her­itage Bank's Vol­un­teer of the Year Award vot­ing closes, now is the time to get on­line and sup­port lo­cal nom­i­nee Sharyn Banks. Ms Banks is the cre­ator of Red Col­lar Res­cue in Biggen­den and has been nom­i­nated for her tire­less work help­ing aban­doned an­i­mals find new homes. The small res­cue cen­tre takes in death row dogs from var­i­ous lo­ca­tions through­out the re­gion which are then mi­crochipped, vac­ci­nated, de­sexed and heart­worm tested. Red Col­lar Res­cue is man­aged by an un­paid, elected com­mit­tee, with all funds com­ing from fundrais­ing and dona­tions. So far, Ms Banks is fifth on the Vol­un­teer of the Year leader board. The win­ner will re­ceive $10,000 for their or­gan­i­sa­tion and $1000 for them­selves while the run­ner-up vol­un­teer will be awarded with $1000 for their or­gan­i­sa­tion and $100 for them­selves. Vot­ing closes to­mor­row and the win­ner will be an­nounced on Fe­bru­ary 10.
