We'd love to introduce you to our first volunteer, Margarette.
Margarette has been a much-loved member of the Wandoan community since 2009, where she volunteers her time wherever and whenever she can. Margarette's a passionate advocate for remote and rural communities, and loves her work helping those in need: whether it's as the Secretary/Treasurer for the Wandoan Community Commerce and Industry, Secretary for the Wandoan Health Auxiliary, or simply helping get people to their medical appointments.
Margarette's outstanding work for her community was recognised earlier this year, when she was awarded Wandoan Citizen of the Year 2018 — something she's very proud of. And she hopes others in her community will follow her lead:
"I am passionate about what I do and I hope that my deeds are enough incentive for others to take up the rewarding job of being a volunteer." #NVW2018
