Our incredible volunteers

May saw almost 200 Benetas volunteers and staff grace the Ballroom at Rippon Lea Mansion in Elsternwick for the annual Benetas Volunteer Thank You Luncheon.

As part of National Volunteer Week, every year Benetas thanks our almost 400 volunteers for their dedication and support. It is also a time to reflect on the amazing contributions of volunteers in our communities.

Benetas is very lucky to have as many volunteers as we do – in fact in 2012 volunteers contributed over 28,000 hours of their time. This year, the Benetas Volunteer of the Year Award was presented to Noreen Donohoe from the Benetas Support Office.

The judging panel included external representatives from Volunteering Victoria and the Boroondara Volunteer Resource Centre. They acknowledged Noreen’s regular and long standing commitment of providing administration assistance to our Support Office located in Hawthorn East.

Members of the People Development team who nominated Noreen for the award said, “Working tirelessly, Noreen has helped the Human Resources and administration staff ensure that they attract and retain quality people through a variety of initiatives and projects. By doing so, Noreen has made a really positive impact on the lives of all Benetas clients.”

Ellen Flint, General Manager People Development, said “On behalf of all Benetas staff, I say a huge thank you to all our Volunteers. They add an incredible amount of value to the services we offer, and we couldn’t support our clients without their input.”
