Recognising our Volunteers

Source: Lithgow City Council
Posted: 29 May 2020
Due to Covid-19 Lithgow City Council’s planned Volunteer week celebrations had to be cancelled this year. As an alternative to our planned celebrations we are asking the community to nominate volunteers from our communities who you think deserve to be recognised.

“Volunteers are such an important part of our community”, says Mayor Ray Thompson, “from providing meals and social support, running our sporting clubs, fighting fires and mopping up after disasters, mentoring young ones and caring for vulnerable members of the community, the work of volunteers is what makes our community such an amazing place to be”.

Due to social gathering restrictions this year we were unable to gather together to celebrate and pay tribute to our volunteers, instead Lithgow City Council is presenting vouchers that support our local businesses to our amazing volunteers. If you know someone who is working to make our community a better place by volunteering their time and skills we want to know about them!

Tell us who you nominate and why.

Nominations close on June 12th.

For more information please contact Ali Kim on 63549999.
