This week is National Volunteer Week and Gilmore MP Fiona Phillips has thanked all the volunteers across the South Coast for their efforts caring and supporting our community, particularly when we needed the community to come together in such a tough couple of years.
“During such tough times the community has shown how valuable our volunteers are – and how grateful we are to have so many volunteers in our community in our time of need. We are so very appreciative to each one of you,” Member for Gilmore, Fiona Phillips said.
The South Coast has faced a barrage of disasters this year from floods to coronavirus, while still recovering from bushfires all on the back of years of relentless drought. But Fiona Phillips said, “what has shone through more than anything is the amazing community spirit and resilience local people have shown by banding together and being there for one another.”
“Those that volunteer are selfless. Our volunteers really have changed communities and changed lives.”
“I am giving a big wave of appreciation to all our local volunteers for all you have done this year and always,” Fiona Phillips said.
