Last chance for vol­un­teers

Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

TIME is run­ning out to give credit to an out­stand­ing vol­un­teer through this year’s WA Vol­un­teer of the Year Awards.

Nom­i­na­tions close on Fri­day, March 9, and Vol­un­teer­ing WA chief ex­ec­u­tive Tina Williams urged peo­ple to take the op­por­tu­nity to recog­nise a spe­cial per­son or or­gan­i­sa­tion.

“These awards serve to high­light the out­stand­ing con­tri­bu­tions of in­di­vid­u­als and or­gan­i­sa­tions that make WA a bet­ter place to live,” Ms Williams said.

“We look for­ward to show­cas­ing these in­cred­i­ble vol­un­teers and or­gan­i­sa­tions who are do­ing amaz­ing work in our com­mu­ni­ties.”

There are about 600,000 vol­un­teers in WA, from cor­po­rate or­gan­i­sa­tions de­liv­er­ing ser­vices to mums and dads who help out ju­nior sport.

Win­ners of the eight awards will be an­nounced dur­ing Na­tional Vol­un­teers Week in May.
