The 2020 Alcoa Peel Volunteer of the Year Awards are now open

Peel Volunteer Resource Centre have opened nominations for the Peel Volunteer of the Year Awards now in their 13th year, these awards promote the value and important contribution of volunteering to the social, cultural, economic and environmental well-being of the Peel Community and pays tribute to those who encourage and promote the spirit of volunteerism though their exemplary accomplishments.

The huge contribution which Volunteers make to others’ lives is immeasurable; they work in Sporting Clubs, Social Services, Community Groups and Emergency Services to enhance our lives in so many ways. All without payment! Some may give a few hours others work almost fulltime, but they all have one thing in common, they care!

To be eligible for these awards the volunteering effort must benefit the Peel Region.

We all have an opportunity to say “#We Appreciate Volunteers” to these outstanding individuals and groups/organisations in our Community.

You can nominate a special volunteer in the following categories:
– Peel Volunteer supported by City of Mandurah
– Peel Youth Volunteer supported by Shire of Murray
– Peel Community Group supported by Shire of Waroona

Nominations forms can be downloaded from our website www.peelvolunteer.org.au or email for a copy of the nomination form manager@peelvolunteer.org.au .

Nominations close 30th October 2020. For further information contact us here at PVRC on 9581 1187 or email manager@peelvolunteer.org.au

We would like to thank our partners in these awards Alcoa Australia, City of Mandurah, Shire of Murray, and the Shire of Waroona.
