• Member for Barker Tony Pasin MP is set to acknowledge the work of Barker’s Volunteers next month with the launch of his ‘Barker Volunteer Awards’ program.


National Volunteer Week is a week to highlight the importance of volunteering and acknowledge and thank those that give their time to volunteer for the benefit of others.


National Volunteer Week is Australia’s largest annual celebration of volunteering and will be held on 15 – 21 May 2023.


“Volunteers really are the heart of communities across Barker and they deserve recognition for the time and skills they donate to help make our local communities great places to live, work and raise a family,” Mr Pasin said.


“From the local Men’s Shed, Footy or Netball Club, cancer support group or CFS, more often than not it’s the unpaid work of volunteers that keeps these organisations running and offering so much to the local community,” Mr Pasin said.


“The Barker Volunteer Awards are a small way in which I can acknowledge and thank the community members who go above and beyond by volunteering,” Mr Pasin said.


Nomination forms are avalible at Tony Pasin’s office or online at www.tonypasin.com.


Nominations close 1 May 2023.
