In celebration of National Volunteer Week, we want to recognise one of our volunteers Jo - who also helps to organise the volunteers for the HKWS events. ✨ She’s on the Community Engagement Committee where we meet regularly and organise the yearly program of HKWS events and stalls which raise awareness and donations. ✨ Here are 2 of her most magical moments as a volunteer: 1️⃣ 40 volunteers assisted her as road Marshals at The Bobbo Classic, a fundraising bike ride for Lifeline departing from Kurah Oval Turramurra, organised by 4 local Rotary clubs. 2️⃣ A perfect stranger walked up to the Christmas gift wrapping stall she was working at and placed a $100 note in another volunteer’s hand and said nothing. He looked down with a gentle smile and reached a hand out to each of his 2 daughters and walked away. ✨ When she’s not volunteering with us, she works in her family business, SOS Removals & Storage. Her business supports HKWS financially through monetary donations, volunteering resources and manpower, providing removal & storage services and sponsoring events. Thank you Jo! 🙏 💜 Volunteering Australia Women's Community Shelters #HKWS #NationalVolunteerWeek2023 #NVW2023
