Cheers to Volunteers
Published Thursday, 30th June 2016
The efforts of volunteers from the City of Wanneroo’s emergency services were gratefully acknowledged at an appreciation dinner on Friday night.
Almost 150 people attended Bridgeleigh Reception Centre, with volunteers from Two Rocks Volunteer Marine Rescue, Wanneroo – Joondalup SES, Yanchep Fire and Rescue, Quinns Mindarie Surf Life Saving Club, Yanchep Surf Life Saving Club and the Driver Reviver program.
Wanneroo Mayor Tracey Roberts thanked all of the volunteers for giving up their time for the benefit of the community, acknowledging that they often did so in difficult and dangerous situations.
“Our emergency services volunteers have all played a role in keeping the City of Wanneroo - and our residents – safe,” Mayor Roberts said. “Whether it’s on the ocean or land, on the front line or in a support role – their skills and assistance are crucial to the well-being of our 195,000 residents.”
Mayor Roberts also presented volunteer excellence awards to four volunteers who had gone above and beyond the call of duty.
