International Volunteer Day is celebrated all around the world on the 5th December.
A day to celebrate and acknowledge volunteers everywhere and in Australia it is called Thank A Volunteer Day. Every year Rise invites a group of volunteers along to Government House for an afternoon of canapes, drinkies and inspiring stories.
I have been to this event for the last 12 years and it never disappoints - between speeches, stories and yummy food and drink we left the event inspired and motivated. Rise has nearly 150 volunteers and we couldn't do what we do without them and their unwavering support. Thank you to you all for everything you do to support us and more importantly to support our clients.
