Multiple Birth Association celebrates volunteers

Multiple Birth Association celebrates volunteers who get things done

As every volunteer organisation knows, the key to success is the calibre of the volunteers. In line with National Volunteer Week, the New Zealand Multiple Birth Association (NZMBA) and PORSE In Home Childcare will launch the 2015 PORSE NZMBA Volunteer Awards.

Five amazing volunteers were acknowledged in 2014, and this year the NZMBA is looking to receive more nominations as awareness of the programme increases. NZMBA President, Carolyn Lister says, “The quality and commitment of the many volunteers within our organisation is incredible, especially considering the fact that many of them lead very busy lives. This programme is one of the ways that our families can say thank you.”

PORSE In Home Childcare, the Multiple Birth Club’s national Sponsor is extremely proud to be supporting and working alongside Multiple Birth as part of the national Volunteer Awards 2015. PORSE National Coach Megan McKenzie says volunteers in any capacity are a crucial part of supporting our local families to grow and foster relationships to gain successful outcomes for our communities. The regional Multiple Birth clubs around the country have an amazing group of people who volunteer their time and experience to support other families when they need it most.

The winners will be announced at the NZMBA National Conference, which this year will be held in Wellington from the 2nd to the 4th of October. Each winner of an award will receive a cash prize and some awards will see a donation made to the winner’s regional multiple birth club.

Categories include:
• €‘A JOB WELL DONE’ AWARD – for a volunteer who has provided exceptional service for the betterment of multiple birth families within their local area or nationally.

• €EMERGING LEADER AWARD – for a volunteer who has stepped up and made a difference in their club or the New Zealand multiple birth community in their first year as a volunteer.

• €COMMUNITY DEDICATION AWARD – for a volunteer who has made an outstanding contribution to their club or the New Zealand multiple birth community over many years.
• €CONTACT/BUDDY/SUPPORT PERSON OF THE YEAR – for a volunteer who has provided exceptional service in the role of a Club Buddy, Contact Person or support person.

• €ONLINE SUPPORT PERSON OF THE YEAR – for a volunteer who has provided exceptional online support via Club or NZMBA Facebook pages, or Twitter
