Volunteer of the Year award
Thursday will be an opportunity for the Port Macquarie-Hastings region to say a big thankyou to its tireless volunteers with the announcement of the 2012 Volunteer of the Year.
Council Administrator Neil Porter said the awards ceremony, hosted by Port Macquarie-Hastings Council, will be held as a part of the Volunteers Expo at Port Panthers. This year there were 20 nominees considered for the award.
"The annual award is to recognise and celebrate local volunteers whose work contributes to the social and cultural well-being of the community," Mr Porter said.
Now in its third year, the award is a way of saying thank you to the many hundreds of volunteers who work tirelessly in the Port Macquarie-Hastings community who volunteered for a diverse range of community organisations.
The winner will receive a certificate and $1,000 donation towards a not-for-profit organisation of their choice.
