National Volunteer Week In Mitchell Shire

Every week hundreds of generous volunteers give up their time to support Mitchell Shire’s community groups and programs.

National Volunteer Week from 20 to 26 May highlights the positive impact that volunteers have on the community, the many ways that people can volunteer and the work that many organisations do to support volunteers.

This year’s national theme is Something for Everyone. Locally, the theme is recognising the many hats that volunteers wear in the community.

  • 1st Broadford Scout Group
