Volunteer Celebration

Society requires volunteers to function. In addition, many not-for-profit organisations would not be able to function without volunteers.

We are hosting a fabulous lunch during National Volunteer Week to help you celebrate those amazing volunteers who put in tremendous efforts to assist ACT not-for-profits in their cause.

This year we have organised a tremendous guest speaker, Tim Shaw - host of "Talking Canberra", who will keep you well and truly entertained while you enjoy a delicious meal shared with those special people whose efforts you would like to acknowledge and celebrate.

Date: Thursday, 24 May
Time: 12.00pm - 2.00pm
Venue: Lemongrass Thai Restaurant, 65 London Circuit, Canberra ACT

All attendees: $40
