Wanneroo volunteers to be celebrated

National Volunteer Week, which is held from May 21-27, includes recognition of the efforts of City of Wanneroo volunteers.

THE contributions of volunteers across the City of Wanneroo will be in the spotlight this week, as the city celebrates National Volunteer Week.

Hundreds of volunteers actively support the city in areas such as community, conservation, culture, heritage and emergency services.

Each year, the City of Wanneroo hosts a series of appreciation dinners to thank its volunteers for their tireless dedication and support.

Mayor Tracey Roberts said volunteers played a significant role in the city.

“Our volunteers give their time so selflessly and are integral to the community spirit in our city,” she said.

“I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank each and every one of them and their supportive families, for everything they do for our growing community.”

The volunteer resource centre at the Wanneroo Library and Cultural Centre provides information about volunteer roles available both within the city and through other local community organisations.

The centre also acts as an advisory service to not-for-profit organisations wanting to learn more about making the most of the services of volunteers.
