GLENYS Boag, Mary Sherwood and Angela Hudson were given recognition at a special luncheon yesterday for their volunteering efforts with the City of Belmont, as part of National Volunteer Week.

This year Ms Boag and Ms Sherwood were recognised for five years of volunteering while Ms Hudson was recognised for 15 years.

City volunteers are involved in a wide variety of the projects and programs including the Tech Savvy Program and Digital Awareness classes, Home and Community Care and Ruth Faulkner Public Library.

Guests attending the luncheon held by the City were also treated to an inspiring talk by Belmont local and Nitro Circus star Todd Meyn, who spoke about his involvement in volunteering.

Mayor Phil Marks said the positive impact that volunteering has in our local community is invaluable.

“We believe that our volunteers contribute to the spirit of our community and are key partners in assisting the City’s visions and goals become reality,” he said.
