Volunteers are thanked with special lunch
Local aged care provider Peninsula Villages marked National Volunteer Week with a special Volunteer Thank You Luncheon and presentation ceremony.
A number of Peninsula Villages' longer-serving volunteers were awarded volunteer service awards for the many years they have dedicated to Peninsula Villages.
"We highly value our hardworking team of volunteers who help enhance the quality of life for our residents and provide a vital service to our community," said CEO Mr Shane Neaves.
"Peninsula Villages is delighted to have a loyal and dedicated team of almost 100 volunteers who assist with everything from day-to-day activities for our residents, to assisting with the Village bus, our meal delivery service, care support, resident leisure and engagement, events and administration.
"Whether it's calling bingo, driving buses, reading to our residents or wheelchair walks, our volunteers really are the heart and soul of Village life.
"It's safe to say that Peninsula Villages would not be the thriving community organisation it is today without the ongoing support of our volunteers," said Mr Neaves.
The volunteers included Mr Tony Millgate, Mr Ian Butler and Ms Mariette Butler, who have all dedicated 11 years of service to the organisation, as well as Ms Lynette Mackay, who this year has reached 12 years of service.
