Linking central Victoria via the old railway line
Not being taken for granted, International Volunteer Day 2016 has recognised the efforts of volunteers in the Greater Bendigo area.
A celebration was held on 5 December at the Bendigo Town Hall, to say thank you to local volunteers and acknowledge the important role that they play in our community.
Along with approximately 400 attending volunteers, Friends of the Bendigo-Kilmore Rail Trail volunteer members who give of their time so generously, attended. Certificates of Recognition were presented by Lisa Chesters MP Federal Member for Bendigo, and City of Greater Bendigo Mayor Cr Margaret O’Rourke, to those who were nominated from the community.
“Volunteers and their organisations have shown what a great job they do, in creating a sense of belonging, social inclusion and build stronger local communities” Ms Chesters said during the ceremony.
