We love our volunteers - Council

Eurobodalla Council is joining thousands of organisations around Australia to celebrate National Volunteer Week this week.

National Volunteer Week is the largest celebration of volunteers and volunteerism in Australia. It provides an opportunity to highlight the role volunteers play in our community and to say ‘thanks’.

Eurobodalla Mayor Liz Innes said Council managed and supported more than 700 happy, active and involved volunteers who regularly gave up their time to deliver services and programs to the community.

“We love our volunteers – without them it would not be possible to provide many of the valuable services supporting Eurobodalla residents,” she said.

“They selflessly provide their time for things like community transport, youth services and active living programs to caring for our environment through Landcare and the Marine Debris Working Group.”

Council’s Community, Arts and Recreation Division alone is reliant on the 23,000 hours of service donated by more than 150 volunteers. Landcare has about 300 volunteers, who contribute about 10,000 hours each year improving Council land, and the Eurobodalla Regional Botanic Gardens boasts 130 volunteers, who play a pivotal role in the Gardens’ success.

Cr Innes said 21.7 per cent of all Eurobodalla residents volunteered in some capacity, which is well above the NSW state average of 16.9 per cent.

“Volunteering strengthens our community, and every volunteer is making a real difference in our community,” she said.

“To all volunteers we say ‘thanks’. Your dedication is phenomenal and your input is invaluable.”
