It's Volunteer Week, coming up  the week we recognise and celebrate the enormous contribution our volunteers make.

Volunteer community bus driver Bruce Edgar is one of a group of volunteers who give up their time to provide a door-to-door bus service for residents with limited transport options.

“I’ve been a volunteer community bus driver for four years, driving between two and three days a week,” said Bruce.

“I like it because I get to help and meet new people every week. We pick passengers up from their homes, help them carry their shopping or anything else they need a hand with. And we make sure they get back home safely to their door.”

The City of Tea Tree Gully has more than 420 active volunteers.

Roles include helping with children and youth programs, walking dogs, and shelving library items.

Other volunteers enjoy hosting children’s birthday parties at our Road and Cycle Safety Centre, or running craft groups or exercise sessions.
