The Moreton Volunteer Awards recognise volunteers who perform extraordinary or outstanding voluntary work in the Moreton electorate.
Many of this year’s 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.
