ACTIVITIES

Albany Regional Volunteer Service holds volunteer recognition events twice a year. Organisations are  encouraged to participate by passing on our invitation to their volunteers, or become involved by holding their own events, running projects or in any other way.

Volunteers are not a special breed of people, they are just like you, except they have taken the step to volunteer. That’s what makes them special. If it wasn’t for the work and generosity of volunteers, community organisations would cease to exisit.
