Volunteer Awards

Earlier this week council held its eighth Volunteer Awards at the Burnie Arts & Function Centre.

Some amazing ladies from The Burnie Guides received awards; Kate Wainwright, Jill Stutterd, Kristen McLagan and Anne Wilson – together they volunteered a massive 67,000 hours!

As a guide to what this actually means in terms of volunteer time to the Guides – if we calculate their combined contribution, even at the minimum wage ($18.93), it would cost the community over a million dollars!! We all better go and buy some girl guide biscuits!

Well done and thank you to our other volunteers who were awarded with a certificate and badge for their dedication Christopher Banks, Inge Kelty, Samantha Walker, Maureen Feltham and Helen Oakman.

Amazing people following their passions, fulfilling their dreams and in the process helping to build a stronger Burnie community #makingburnie2030
