Thousands of people, including families, actively volunteer to support one of the many fundraising, awareness raising and commemoration events held throughout the year across the Shire.

By participating in local events you are volunteering to raise funds or awareness of an issue or need, and actively contributing to your community.

Or you might volunteer to help in the co-ordination of an event near you. There are a range of volunteering roles required in the planning and presentation of community events, that suit all personalities, experience and fitness levels. Contact local community or emergency services organisations to find out how you can volunteer to help!

You can visit the Shire’s Event page to find out more about upcoming events including helping to fight animal cruelty, and raising funds for breast cancer research, cancer support services or hospital services for children.
