Celebrating volunteers' years of service

On Wednesday, 19 May 2021, we presented a number of our amazing volunteers with certificates of appreciation for their three, five, 10, 15, 20 and 25 years of service.

This group of dedicated individuals, along with the rest of our outstanding volunteers, have worked tirelessly over the past 12 months, making it possible for us to continue to deliver services in the most challenging circumstances.

We would like to especially acknowledge the outstanding work of social support assistant, community transport driver and jockey, Paul Beaumont, for his amazing 25 years of service as part of the Connect Health and Community family.  Thank you, Paul.

And a special mention also to auxiliary member, Margaret Patterson, for her 20 years of dedication to our community.

To all our volunteers, we say "Thank you!"
