OPEN Arms Care's Meals on Wheels has celebrated 40 years of providing services to the Bellingen community with a big birthday party at Mylestom and by thanking its tireless volunteers.

A total of 62 past and present volunteers were feted on the day with gifts and certificates acknowledging their contribution to aged care in the shire.

Open Arms Care Ageing Services divisional manager Annette Rose was full of praise for the army of charitable helpers.

"They come with a desire to contribute to the community, but they also make friendships and enjoy a rare sort of camaraderie," Ms Rose said.

"Remember to the world you are someone, but to someone you are the world."

Open Arms Care Inc is a not-for-profit organisation that provides a variety of community services on the Mid North Coast region such as outings and activities, respite for carers, short-term domestic assistance, out and about meal deal vouchers and a meals on wheels service.
