Every Hand Helps - Stallholders wanted for Volunteers Expo

Community groups and organisations are invited to showcase themselves to potential volunteers at the 'Every Hand Helps' Volunteers Expo on Saturday, May 14.

More than 500 people attended the inaugural event at the Brolga Theatre last year to find out about the available groups and services across the Fraser Coast. Mayor Chris Loft said that the success of last year's Expo demonstrates a strong community spirit.

"Over 100 people who attended the event last year showed an interest in volunteering," he said.

"People in our community have so much to contribute with their knowledge, skills and experience - and they want to share that with others.

"It is a fantastic event which connects all walks of life through the common goal of helping one another."

The free Expo will be held at the Hervey Bay Neighbourhood Centre from 10am to 2pm.

Site registration forms are available at www.frasercoast.qld.gov.au The Expo is a Council initiative and part of Volunteers Week 2016.
