Volunteer Recognition Cocktail Party

Volunteer Network and Burwood Council held a Volunteer Recognition Cocktail Party on Thursday 23 November to thank the volunteers of the Inner West who have given their time, energy, experience, expertise and financial commitment throughout the year. 

The event was held at Woodstock Community Centre, it was a great success with around 90 volunteers attending.   It was a great opportunity for volunteers to meet, mingle and enjoy the delicious food and drink.

The guest speaker was Paula Duncan; Paula has worked extensively on stage, film and television and has been a household name throughout Australia for over half of her life, not only as an actress, but as one of Australia's most loved personalities.  Paula spoke about her passions and the community work she is involved in.
