Next week Australians will come together to celebrate National Volunteer Week, recognising the 600,000 people across Western Australia, who give up their time to help others.

Chair of Commissioners Eric Lumsden, said volunteers make a significant impact on improving people’s lives, and the City of Perth is fortunate to have its volunteer group.

“72 volunteers contribute more than 280 hours per week at the Citiplace Community Centre – a friendly service hub for seniors and people with disabilities,” Commissioner Lumsden said.

“Now in its 16th year, the iCity program sees a further 78 volunteers dedicate their time as ambassadors at the Visitor Information Centre, and as City tour guides.

“Through their actions, the City’s volunteers empower, encourage and assist people, while also making visitors to the CBD feel welcome and informed.

“The City is extremely grateful for their commitment.”

National Volunteer Week runs from Monday 21 to Sunday 27 May, 2018.
