Each year in May, Council celebrates the valuable contribution volunteers make to our community.
This year Council is excited to introduce our Community Champions: Changing communities |Changing Lives initiative.
We will recognise not only our volunteers but individuals, neighbours and community groups who have shown compassion, kindness and a helping hand to people in their communities during times of need.
We would love to hear all the beautiful stories of people and communities coming together to support one another, at the hands of your Community Champion, as well as recognising the volunteers who continue to make the hearts of each Federation Council town beat throughout the year.
Council welcomes all people with a community story, individuals or community groups giving up their time to nominate one another by sharing your photos, videos and stories with us via our online form (hyperlink to Volunteer Week page) or email to email@example.com
Please feel free to send through the names, contact numbers and emails of your Community Champions as we would love to celebrate with them, in person, in the future.
Nominations open on Tuesday 28 April and close on Friday 15 May, in time for us to share all of the amazing photos and stories throughout National Volunteer Week from Monday 18 May to Sunday 24 May 2020.
Nominate your local champion and they will go into the draw to win a bouquet of flowers and a $20 local fresh food voucher of their choice. The nominator will also win a $20 gift voucher to a local fresh food provider of your choice. The winners will be announced during National Volunteer Week.
Disclaimer: By submitting a photo/video and story, I and the nominee agree that Federation Council can use the photo/video in which the nominated individual/committee appear in media and online publications.
