Mackay Expo seeks volunteers

Mackay Regional Council Volunteers Expo was well attended on May 7.

Mackay Crime Prevention Unit are searching for interest in becoming a Volunteer in Policing (VIP) so I thought we should bring out some of our best to the Expo. VIPs Jim and John have thousands of volunteer hours under their belts and assist the Mackay police in many useful ways.

Around 20 VIP application forms were handed out to those seeking positions. If you are interested in this role you can find more information about the program here.

Mackay Neighbourhood Watch (NHW) was also looking for new members and assistance was given to sign new members up to the NHW blog at our stall.

VIPs John and Jim

What was so encouraging to see at the Expo was the number of places one can volunteer in Mackay. There are groups involved with animals, the arts, the young the old, indoors and out doors, I hope you find a place that fits style to fill your spare hours!
