Wellington health service thanks its volunteers

The dedication and efforts of volunteers working with the Wellington Health Service, Community and Allied Health, will be acknowledged tomorrow (Wednesday, 23rd February) with a morning tea.

Ms Joan Murphy, Manager of Wellington Community and Allied Health Service, said volunteers played a vital role in assisting the Community and Allied Health Service.

“The contribution of volunteers to the Community and Allied Health Service is invaluable,” she said.

“Volunteers donate their time, enthusiasm and support from working with aged clients in the Aged Activity Centre through to running community and health exercise programs.

“As a small token of our appreciation, our volunteers will be recognised at the monthly morning tea at the Aged Activity Centre” she said.

If you would like to find out more information on volunteering, please contact Joan Murphy at the Wellington Community and Allied Health Service on 68407210.

Friday (25 February 2011) is NSW Health Volunteers Appreciation Day.

NSW Health has a long successful history of encouraging a culture of engaging the community in volunteering. NSW Health greatly values the relationship fostered with volunteers who generously give their time, knowledge and life experiences to support our health services.

Being a volunteer benefits the community and individuals by making it easier for the community to interact with one another socially and at the same time, becoming involved in local community issues, projects and services.
