VOLUNTEERS are the lifeblood of our community and this week, Meals on Wheels Coffs Harbour made sure the organisation’s volunteers knew it.

As part of National Volunteer Week, the largest celebration of volunteers and volunteering in Australia, Meals on Wheels Coffs Harbour decided to celebrate with a bang.

While volunteers are usually ferrying meals to the community, this week they got the chance to sit down and enjoy a meal themselves.

“We organised a luncheon in collaboration with our meal provider Flagstaff Group as well as sweets which are done locally in our kitchen,” manager Bronwyn Webber said.

“Our volunteers sampled the meals we send to our clients. They also received certificates and a volunteer pin.”

Ms Webber said it was important they took the time to thank the volunteers whose contributions were invaluable.

“Meals on Wheels in Coffs Harbour would struggle to survive without the wonderful support of our volunteers and this is our chance to recognise them,” she said.

“The luncheon was held to thank our volunteers for their time, energy and endless smiles.

“Our volunteers are eyes and the ears of Meals on Wheels.”
