This week May 17 – 23 is National Volunteer Week!
National Volunteer Week (NVW) is Australia’s largest annual celebration of volunteers. From Monday 17th to Sunday 23rd May 2021, NVW will celebrate the significant contribution of Australia’s almost six million volunteers. Each year these volunteers dedicate over 600 million hours to help others.
The theme for NVW 2021 is Recognise. Reconnect. Reimagine. which acknowledges that it is time to:
1. RECOGNISE, celebrate and thank volunteers for the vital role they play in our lives.
2. RECONNECT to what is important by giving our time to help others and ourselves.
3. REIMAGINE how we better support volunteers and communities they help.
We as a club are surrounded by wonderful volunteers each and every day and they are the people who make our club the great club that it is. Volunteers are the heart and soul of our club and without them we wouldn’t be the community club that we are, operating so successfully week in week out.
If you see a volunteer around our club this week make sure you give them an extra thanks. The work, effort and commitment they give to our club is outstanding.
