Time to recognise the efforts of volunteers
They work behind the scenes, putting in long hours and sometimes they don’t even get a thank you – they’re our community volunteers and it’s time they were acknowledged.
Held in conjunction with Volunteer Awareness Week, MatamataPiako District mayor Hugh Vercoe said the annual Community Volunteer Awards ceremony is designed to honour the many individuals in the community who volunteer their time to help out in a variety of fields.
‘‘Volunteers are at the heart community spirit,’’ he said.
‘‘Without them services that people rely on such as Meals on Wheels, St John or Victim Support to name just a few, would not be able to operate.’’
The volunteers who help out in the sporting arena are recognised at a
of separate event which Sport Waikato.
There are many unsung heroes in our district, and around 50 people were recognised at the awards ceremony last year for their work.
The 2013 volunteer awards ceremony will be held on Tuesday, June 18 at the Morrinsville Golf Club.
Now is the time to start thinking about all those in our community who deserve to be recognised for their efforts.
