TWO local volunteers were among more than 50 people who have collectively given more than 2000 years to volunteering and were acknowledged at the WA Volunteer Service Awards.
The awards recognise volunteers who have provided 25 or more and 50 years or more service to one organisation.
Robert Anderson of Greenfields has served the RAJWA and WA for 48 years as a sitting Justice of the Peace.
Aileen Bulstrode of South Yunderup is a past president of the State Council as well as past president of Perth.
She served on the board as well as various committees and has volunteered at the Royal Show tearooms and fundraising events.
Seniors and Volunteering Minister Paul Miles said it was important to recognise the valuable and ongoing contribution made by volunteers in WA communities.
“Without volunteers, some organisations simply would not be able to provide services needed to support some of our most vulnerable citizens,’’ he said.
