Volunteer Resource Centre Manawatu & Districts Recognition Event 2019

To celebrate National Volunteer Week (16 - 23 June 2019), Volunteer Resource Centre Manawatu and Districts will host Recognition Events for volunteers in our region. They will be held in Palmerston North and Levin. These events will recognise the outstanding efforts and achievements by volunteers of all ages, in all sectors.

Volunteer work is done of one's free will, unpaid, for the common good.
Aroha ki te takata a rohe.

We are looking for stories that resonate - why people are volunteering, what impact this has on the volunteer, and what impact this has on the organisations and communities they are volunteering for. All the nominees will receive a Certificate of Appreciation and will be invited to celebrate with the wider community.
