This week (15-21 May) is National Volunteer Week when we celebrate volunteering. We would like to say a very special thankyou to all the BUSHkids’ volunteers who generously donate so much of their time to help us help you. BUSHkids couldn’t provide its free of charge services to Queensland communities without the help of our wonderful volunteers.

BUSHkids are extremely lucky to have so many extraordinarily talented people who volunteer to help us. Whether it’s though their involvement on our board, their work with Friends of BUSHkids (FoBk), providing connections with the communities we support, raising donations and helping out at our service centres they all give their time freely and selflessly.

Last financial year alone BUSHkids volunteers have contributed over 600 hours of their own time, equalling an estimated monetary value of $100,000 (minimum) cost saving for BUSHkids; however, to us their contribution is really priceless!

Thank you again to all our volunteers for your invaluable support.
