THIS week, The Bulletin did two call outs to see who you thanked for volunteering their time, muscles, brains or other items in an effort to help the community.

The Bulletin did the call out as part of National Volunteers Week via Facebook.

Here is a list of organisations you thanked:

  •     Rockhampton Safety House with special thanks to Jenny Wheeler who puts more than herself into her work - Rhonda Graham
  •     A HUGE shout out to the Volunteers at Riding for Disabled at Parkhurst. Amazing people (most of them retired 'older' men & women) doing an amazing job with limited resources & limited Volunteers. Another HUGE shout out to my daughter Anja who is only 22 & happily volunteers there each week. Thank you all!!!! - Fayleen Zemlicoff
  •     I would like to shout out to all the volunteers of Camp Quality for the awesome job that we all do - Jeni Thomson
  •     I would like to thank everyone who volunteers there time for Live Education Rockhampton - Elizabeth Cunningham
  •     I wish us volunteers at the Archer Park Rail Museum got some praises at times.- Hugh Hartwig

We thank everyone for participating and hope you'll continue to comment on our Facebook posts.
