2012 Newcastle Community Volunteer Awards

'Volunteers - Every One Counts.' This was the 2012 National Volunteer Week's theme, a tribute to the people that contribute more than 700 million hours of their time to the Australian society each year.

The Federal Member for Newcastle, Sharon Grierson, has announced that nominations are now open for the 2012 Newcastle Community Volunteer Awards. The initiative aims to make sure that efforts of outstanding volunteers in the area are publicly acknowledged. Organisations themselves may also be nominated and recognised.

To recognise the wonderful work that is done across Newcastle, we invite you to designate someone who should be praised for their invaluable contribution as a volunteer. Nominations close Friday, 6 July, so please complete a nomination form to help us to keep celebrating our Volunteers.
