Nominate a Volunteer
The Nationals Member for Gippsland South, Danny O’Brien is calling on Gippslanders to help recognise the achievements of volunteers in our region by nominating them for the 2019 Victorian Premier’s Volunteer Champions Awards.
“It’s hard to think of any sector in the community that isn't touched by volunteering and to which volunteers make a vital contribution,” Mr O’Brien said.
“Volunteers provide support and care for the elderly, they look after our beautiful natural environment through Landcare groups, they are responsible for running our local junior and senior sporting clubs and at the times when the community is at its most vulnerable, our emergency services volunteers in the CFA, SES, and Life Saving Victoria are there to protect us.”
The awards will recognise up to 60 volunteers across the state in the categories of leadership, impact, service and teamwork.
Nominations are now open and close 28 June 2019.
