Western Victoria Volunteering Awards

Last Friday night was the Inaugural Bendigo Bank Volunteering Recognition Awards for 2013 held at the Horsham Town Hall, and what a night it was! With the true hero’s of our communities being recognised for the huge efforts they put into clubs and organisations throughout Western Victoria. I was privileged to photograph the event for the organisers and see the first event of its kind for this region really become a hit for what I expect will be for many years to come! The only downside was that all the recognised runners up couldn’t go home with a win, but the wins they have given their communities will surely be treasured!

                    • young volunteers
