Volunteering Week commenced from 13th -19th May 2013 and is the
largest celebration of volunteers and the art of volunteering. In Australia
approximately 6 million people volunteer annually in Australia. For the second
year running COTA WA and Injury Control Council of Western Australia (ICCWA)
joined forces to take their volunteers on a “Mystery Bus Tour”.
On the 15th May 2013, 36 volunteers and staff journeyed to
Whiteman Park for a light lunch and a time of relaxation. A general knowledge
quiz was issued on the bus and Edith Pedersen and Jane Newsome were the first
place winners representing COTA WA. Both received a book voucher. All
volunteers received a certificate of appreciation from Volunteering Australia.
Photographs were taken by Travis Hayto, Outerbounds Photography.
This event is funded and supported by Lotterywest, ICCWA, COTAWA
and Volunteering Australia.
