Volunteer Awards Night
Our Volunteers are the pillars of our association. They have spent countless hours, throughout the year, supporting local families at grass-roots level. This has involved not only running our regular business but also organising events, fundraising, networking with local and national organisations, maintaining governance activities, and advocating for multiple-birth families in our region.
We think our Volunteers are extra special. They are probably the busiest people on earth, yet they still make the time to support others as they know that nothing is more valuable than support from someone who has a lived experience, someone who can share the journey, someone from the same tribe! Our Volunteers are Grandparents, Aunties, Uncles, Siblings and Parents of twins, triplets or more.
Calling ALL VOLUNTEERS to join us for our Volunteer Awards Night on June 22nd at 5pm. This is an opportunity for the club to say thank you for all that you have done this year, big and small as it all counts!
You don't have to be on the committee to attend. If you are a T&DMBA member and have helped in any way or intend on helping out in the future then you are invited!
We will be enjoying a family night with live music from a local talent and a yummy dinner with smoked meats. Dinner and non-alcoholic drinks are provided for all families.
Please RSVP so that you can be catered for. CLICK HERE to register your interest.
A bit about Josie, the talented local that will be providing us with entertainment on the night.....
