A Christmas 'thank you' for our volunteers

Connect Health & Community CEO, Amanda Murphy thanked our volunteers for their amazing contribution to our organisation over the past year, at the annual Volunteers' Christmas Party this afternoon.

Ms Murphy hosted more than 100 volunteers for lunch at the Murrumbeena Bowls Club where guests enjoyed food, friendship and festivities to celebrate another 12 months of invaluable work in the delivery of Connect Health & Community's vital health services.

Volunteers enjoy the conviviality of the festive lunch.

"Our volunteers are the lifeblood of our organisation and we are truly grateful for your dedication and hard work," she said. 

“Over the past year, you have given us more than 20,000 hours of vital, yet unpaid assistance. Without you, our work would truly not be possible. Thank you.” 

Ms Murphy said, “We wish you all, and your families and loved ones, a wonderful festive season and look forward to seeing you all in the new year.”
