Volunteers throughout the Wheatbelt were celebrated for their contribution to their communities during a morning tea run by Volunteering WA and the Wheatbelt Volunteer Hub. 

The morning tea celebrated volunteers from organisations in towns including Northam, York and Moora. 

Despite missing out on funding the morning tea was able to go ahead thanks to the generous donations from local businesses.

Nationals WA leader Mia Davies was in attendance alongside Northam Shire president Chris Antonio. 

This year’s theme was ‘Volunteers build resilient communities’.

Wheatbelt Volunteer Hub coordinator Tanya Richardson said volunteers are an integral part of communities. 

She said this year volunteers in the Wheatbelt would contribute $3.5 million to their communities. 

Ms Richardson said the main role of the Hub is to match volunteers to organisations, events and businesses looking for their skills.

She said the Hub, that is open Tuesday and Wednesday at the Northam Recreation Centre is always looking for people who want volunteers. 

Ms Richardson said there is never a shortage of people looking to volunteer their time and abilities and if businesses are after those volunteers they should register their roles to the Wheatbelt Volunteer Hub.
