2023 Flynn Volunteer Awards

Volunteers play an important role throughout our Flynn Community, giving their time, energy and skills to support others. They are at the heart of our community groups, schools, sporting organisations, and some of the first to respond to natural disasters.

In the lead up to National Volunteers Week 15-21st May 2023, I would like to recognise our local heroes and show how much they are valued and appreciated.

While it’s always hard to single people out, there might be someone (or a couple of people) in your organisation who always seem to go that extra mile and deserve a special thank you.

Perhaps you have someone celebrating a special anniversary with the organisation, or a new volunteer that came on board and dived right in the deep end, or one of those backbone members of the group, operating behind the scenes but that you simply don’t know what you’d do without.

At the link below, there are details on how you can nominate these local heroes to receive a Certificate of Appreciation.

Certificates will be sent to the community group, for presentation to these amazing people. For those living in the Gladstone and Emerald areas – these will be available to collect from your respective Electorate Office.

Please note that the nominee must live within the Flynn Electorate, and a maximum of 5 nominations can be submitted per organisation per year. Nominations are due by 30th April 2023.
