The Sutherland Shire is lucky to have many generous volunteers who give their time and expertise to help others in the community.
It's National Volunteer Week between 13 to 19 May - so it's even more important that we say 'thanks a million' to all our volunteers for their time, dedication, perspiration, skills and good humour! And if you've yet to volunteer, we hope to welcome you to the family soon.
Clean Up Australia Day volunteers
Animal Shelter volunteers
