An Evening in the ParkDecember 6, 2017 News
Sunday the 3rd December 2017 was the City of Cockburn’s Inspirational Volunteer Awards afternoon. The event was hosted at the Shell in Manning Park, a grassy hilled area sheltered by beautiful native bush and trees and spectacularly large Dragon Flies. The evening included entertainment, music and the awards presentation.
Melville Cares nominated two volunteers this year for recognition, Christa Kaltenbrunn-Long and Treasur D’Cruz both living in the City of Cockburn. Christa has been a staff member for 10 years and has been volunteering with the Community Visitors Scheme for 11 years. She visits a lady in a local nursing home for social conversation and the occasional outing and received a Local Hero certificate at the awards. Thanks for all of your amazing work at Melville Cares, Christa! If you know anyone who is interested in volunteering, we’d love to hear from you on 9319 0900 or pop us an email via our website at https://melvillecares.org.au/contact-us/ for more information.
