National Volunteer Week in Whyalla
McRitchie Crescent Reserve Whyalla provided the ideal venue on Friday to celebrate with other community organisations and groups for National Volunteer Week and National Families Week.
Beyond Bank volunteers David Miller and Gill Harvey were kept busy promoting the Volunteer Rewards Card, handing out balloons to children and passing out giveaways assisting the event organiser Corporation of the City of Whyalla.
The afternoon event provided families with free activities, giveaways and games. Families SA / Volunteering SA – NT distributed free bubble kits to children, needless to say there were bubbles in abundance floating across the reserve. Other free activities included face painting, a bouncy castle, horse riding, sausage sizzle and a special appearance from the “Centacare Care Bears”.
Prior to the conclusion of the event, the Whyalla Community Brass Band entertained all the volunteers and families with a selection of music adding atmosphere to a near perfect day.
Beyond Bank supports volunteers by recognising and rewarding them and by assisting volunteering organisations across Australia.
