Nominate Now for Andrew Powell’s Volunteer Awards

It’s been a few years, but now Member for Glass House Andrew Powell is bringing back his Volunteer Awards.

If you’re part of a community organisation with a standout volunteer, now is the time to let them know just how appreciated they are.

“Without volunteers Glass House organisations and sporting groups just wouldn’t exist.  The Volunteer Awards are my opportunity to show them how much we appreciate their help,” said Mr Powell.

“The nomination process is as easy as ever.  Just send me an email at and let me know who you’d like to nominate and what organisation they’re from.”

There will be a morning tea held at the Maleny Community Centre on Friday 18th November at 10:00am for all nominated volunteers and representatives from their organisations.

“Tickets are free for anyone who’s been nominated as well as the person who nominated them. Extra tickets are just $10 per head.”

“The morning tea will be catered by the wonderful ladies of the Maleny Hospital Auxiliary, so it’s sure to be delicious.”

“This is a time to celebrate the way volunteers shape and contribute to our communities.  If you’ve ever visited a community hall, neighbourhood centre or RSL, been helped by a rural fire brigade, school P&C or men’s shed, then you will know the generosity of our volunteers.”

“Many Glass House volunteers are also retired.  They’ve well and truly earnt the right to relax and take it easy, but instead we see them dedicating time to bettering and improving their community.”

“Please take the time to send in a nomination for an outstanding volunteer in your life and RSVP for the morning tea before 4 November,” concluded Mr Powell.
