The NSW Volunteer of the Year Awards have grown to become one of the largest celebrations of volunteering across the country.
The Awards are now in their 13th year and celebrate the efforts of the state’s volunteers across seven different award categories. More than 2,500 special guests, families and friends attend ceremonies at 20 locations across regional and suburban centres to celebrate the regional winners of the volunteer awards.
Finalists are invited to the Gala State Ceremony in Sydney to announce the final winners and overall NSW Volunteer of the Year. More than 112,000 people from over 500 organisations were recognised with awards and certificates at last year’s awards, with special messages of support received from the NSW Governor, our Prime Minister and the NSW Premier.
“Please nominate those special volunteers in our communities so they might be recognised for all they do for us,” said Member for Orange, Phil Donato.
