Council offers residents to attend Volunteering North Queensland Conference free of charge

VOLUNTEERS are the lifeblood of our community. They give their time and skills to help make Hinchinbrook one of the best places to live in Queensland. Hinchinbrook is blessed to have a large range of community associations and groups, from sporting clubs, services clubs, to welfare groups. There are volunteer organisations to suit everyone.

Council is currently seeing a gradual reduction in the number of our volunteers as the average age of our community increases.

Mayor Ramon Jayo said, “I strongly encourage all residents to consider becoming a volunteer. Residents can volunteer for a few hours a year at the Australian Italian Festival or deliver meals for Meals on Wheels for example, or you can be a regular volunteer. There is something for everyone.”

Volunteering North Queensland will soon be holding their inaugural conference. To try and encourage residents to become volunteers, and assist them in recruiting new members, Council would like to offer local residents the chance to attend this conference on Saturday 28 May 2022 free of charge.  The conference program is available at VNQ_Program_A4.pdf

You may not be able to attend but perhaps you would like to nominate someone else from our community?

Interested members are requested to email your details to council@hinchinbrook.qld.gov.au by Tuesday 3 May 2022. Nominees must be able to attend on Saturday 28 May in Townsville. Council will arrange a bus to travel to and from the venue if required.

Should you require any further information or clarification concerning the matter, please contact The Office of the Mayor and CEO on 4776 4602 for the necessary assistance.
