Nominations have now opened for the 2024 NSW Volunteer of the Year awards which celebrate the hard work and dedication that goes into the community. 

Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson said volunteers were the backbone of so many community groups, organisations and initiatives. 

“Volunteers contribute $178 billion to the NSW economy, and I know here locally, our community just wouldn’t work without the hard work and dedication of volunteers,” Mr Anderson said. 

“I’ve said many times that volunteers are the backbone of our communities, and that is particularly true in the Tamworth electorate. 

“From our show committees to our Lions clubs, our emergency services and our hospital auxiliaries, there are those in our communities who work day and night to make our part of the world a better place to live. 

“If you know someone who deserves to be recognised as part of the 2024 NSW Volunteer of the Year Awards, I encourage you to get your nomination in now!” 

The NSW Volunteer of the Year Awards are an annual program aimed at recognising the incredible dedication, effort and community service of our state’s volunteers, volunteer leaders and volunteer teams. 

Nominations for the 2024 awards opened today and close on 14 June 2024. 

There are eight categories of awards including Adult Volunteer of the Year, Young Volunteer of the Year, Senior Volunteer of the Year, and more.
