West Coast Volunteers to be Recognised

24 April 2017

In recognition of the contribution of volunteers across the West Coast, West Coast Council will be hosting an event on Tuesday 9 May as part of National Volunteer Week.

“Volunteering is a core part of the West Coast,” West Coast Mayor Phil Vickers stated.  “Without our many volunteers giving up countless hours many essential services, facilities and sport and cultural activities that are available to residents and visitors to the West Coast would not happen.”

The event, to be held Tuesday 9 May, encourages all West Coast volunteers to come together for a light supper and to share their volunteering stories.

West Coast Council is committed to supporting volunteering across the region, as highlighted in the West Coast Community Plan 2025.

“Volunteers help strengthen the local community by sharing their skills and knowledge,” Mayor Vickers said.  “Volunteering is a great way of becoming involved in your local community and to really make a difference and we look forward to seeing as many West Coast volunteers as possible attend this event.”

National Volunteers Week 2017 will be held the week of 8-12 May to acknowledge the generous contribution volunteers make to our communities.  RSVPs for the West Coast event are due by 3 May.
