WIN volunteers given a big thank-you

THE Welcoming Intercultural Neighbours community held a volunteer thank you day on Sunday that attracted more than 50 people.

The family fun event was held at Boyne Island's Riverstone Rise, complete with a jumping castle, police koala mascot, and an array of multicultural foods.

For Gloria Moreno being a volunteer gives her so much enjoyment.

"I've been a volunteer since I moved here in September 2013," she said.

"I'm a Spanish teacher with WIN and it just gives me a good feeling that I'm helping and get to meet a lot of new friends."

WIN organiser Malwina Pattion said the afternoon went really well and its purpose was significant.

"Our aim was to bring together all of our hard working volunteers and celebrate a very successful 2014 with them," she said.

"It's our chance to say thank you and give back to them with the certificates and we're giving out."
