VOLUNTEERS were recognised for their efforts by the City of Wanneroo this month.

The City held a volunteers appreciation dinner on March 10, where more than 120 people involved in conservation and community services were thanked for their contributions.

Keep Tapping Tidy member Yvonne Mahon and City community transport helpers Eric Byleveld and John Beaton received volunteer excellence awards.

Their peers nominated the trio for their outstanding commitment.

Mayor Tracey Roberts said the dinner was a small token of appreciation.

“What sets these volunteers apart is the heart with which they approach their volunteering, it is the spirit of giving that keeps our communities connected and strong and weaves the fabric of our society,” she said.

“Our volunteers are truly selfless in putting the needs of others before themselves and those qualities are thoroughly worth recognising and rewarding.

“I am incredibly proud to know we have so many community-minded people in the City of Wanneroo.”
