Volunteer Recognition Event 2016

Yarra Volunteers – Love Your WorkGardening

Yarra City Council is hosting a special event during National Volunteer Week (9-15 May 2016) to celebrate the contributions of local volunteers.

This year, rather than awarding certificates to all volunteers, we are introducing an extraordinary contribution award for one volunteer per organisation, for going above and beyond the call of duty.

The event will be held on 10 May at Collingwood Town Hall from 2-5pm and will feature entertainment, guest speakers and light refreshments.

The celebration is an opportunity for Council to formally recognise and thank local volunteers who offer their time and skills to help others in the community. It is our way of saying to volunteers – 'we love your work!'

The event will also provide an opportunity for volunteers to meet each other and share their experiences.

Local organisations including sporting clubs, community services and environmental groups are encouraged to complete the online registration form below to state the number of people who volunteer within the organisation. 

All volunteers will receive a commemorative pin from Yarra City Council.

Online registration is now open.
