Volunteers celebrated at awards ceremony

Volunteers from across Lower Hutt were last night celebrated for their generosity and service to the community.

Hutt City Council’s Volunteer Awards are an annual opportunity to recognise those individuals and groups across the city that help to make Lower Hutt such a great community.

Last night’s volunteer awards encompassed the Wellington Airport Regional Community Awards for Lower Hutt and the Civic Honour Awards.

Lower Hutt Mayor Ray Wallace says the awards highlight the contribution our city’s volunteers make every day.

“It was great to formally recognise the selfless time and energy devoted by volunteers. If we could count up the hours given by volunteers to our city each year, it would be phenomenal.

“Our volunteers make our community a better, brighter, more vibrant place in which to live. They are our local heroes.”
