With National Volunteer Week fast approaching, Woodlea is taking the opportunity to celebrate our local heroes who selflessly donate their time to provide ongoing support for fellow residents and the broader community.
From May 20-26th, national peak body Volunteering Australia will celebrate its 30th anniversary, raising awareness to the 6 million Australians who volunteer their time.
Each year is dedicated to a different theme, with this year’s announced as “Making a world of difference”.
Woodlea would like to make mention of a few incredible individuals who are going above and beyond to make a difference, helping to make Woodlea a stronger and more resilient community.
First is David Saunders, Secretary at Caroline Springs RSL, who is one of the many fantastic individuals donating his time to drive the free shuttle service around Woodlea.
With many residents relying on the service to get to and from Rockbank Station, David and his fellow drivers play a pivotal role in our community. Always doing so with a smile!
Not only does David donate his own time as a driver, but he has also been key in developing the service to adapt to our fast growing community.
Next is young father and Afghanistan Veteran John Naidu who has volunteered his time at the Caroline Springs RSL since 2017.
Settling in Woodlea in 2016 after 15 years of service in the Australian Defence Force (ADF), John has played an active role in providing support for both current and former ADF members and their dependents.
John was Vice President Caroline Springs RSL for 12 months until resigning from the role earlier this year to spend more time with family but still remains involved in RSL initiatives and helping other community members.
He has specifically contributed to the Afghanistan and Iraq section of AIntree Walk of Honour.
Last, but not least is Andrew Ingram, one of our prominent volunteers at Rockbank CFA. Providing ongoing efforts to educate the community on fire safety, Andrew and his fellow CFA volunteers run free sessions for Woodlea residents and surrounds, sharing lifesaving information about home fire safety, as well as grassland and bushfire risks in the local area.
With such a thriving volunteer community, Woodlea would once again like to take the opportunity to thank each and every resident who takes the time to make this the wonderful community that it is today.
