THE City of Joondalup is celebrating volunteer stories in a photographic exhibition as part of its National Volunteer Week activities.
Hosted in partnership with Volunteering WA and Lotterywest, the content for A World of Change: An Exhibition of Volunteer Stories was sourced through an expression of interest process, with a photographer engaged to capture special volunteer moments at local groups.
Mayor Albert Jacob joined volunteers, supervisors and community group representatives at Joondalup Library for the official launch of the thought-provoking exhibition, which runs until Sunday, May 26.
He said 19.5 per cent of the City’s residents were volunteers, while up to 300 sporting clubs, community groups and other volunteer-involving organisations also operated across its 22 suburbs.
Celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2019, this year’s National Volunteer Week, from May 20 to 26, is themed ‘making a world of difference’.
