The Moreton Volunteer Awards honour the hard work and volunteer spirit that is alive and well on the Southside.
They are an important reminder that we are not just individuals living in the same geographic location, but we are a community working together.
This past year, more than any other year, has demonstrated the strength of our community and what community really means.
Our award recipients are outstanding representatives of people who care, of people who step up and of people who just know what needs to be done.
The work that each of our award recipients do may vary, but each of them, through their work, touch the lives of others and make those lives better.
Some of this year’s recipients volunteer across many of the cultural and religious communities within Moreton, actively demonstrating the wonderful inclusiveness of our community.
By their quiet example, day after day, they are signalling to the rest of us the way to treat our neighbours.
