Thanks to volunteers
I AM writing to thank all Cancer Council Queensland volunteers, and emphasise their importance this National Volunteer Week (May 18-24).
Volunteers are a vital part of
Cancer Council Queensland, and their support allows us to invest in vital cancer research, prevention programs and patient support services.
The theme for National Volunteer Week 2020 is ‘Changing communities, changing lives’ which speaks to the difference that every volunteer makes when they dedicate their time to a good cause.
Cancer Council Queensland values its volunteers across all our services, from transport to treatment drivers to our fundraising volunteers who sell fresh flowers and pins on Daffodil Day.
National Volunteer Week is a special opportunity to honour those that give their time, energy and enthusiasm to ensure Queenslanders affected by cancer have hope and support.
It is especially important to shine a light on our volunteers during this time and recognise their dedication to providing support throughout the current global pandemic. We are simply in awe of the spirit and passion demonstrated through these times.
We wouldn’t be able to work towards a cancer free future without our volunteers, and their commitment to the cause enables us to reduce the burden of cancer on the 29,000 Queenslanders who are diagnosed with cancer each year.
Their support not only changes and saves lives, our volunteers also make a positive impact on our communities, providing local services across Queensland.
Cancer Council Queensland always welcomes new volunteers to help across the organisation, from cancer support roles to fundraising members.
Cancer Council, Queensland
