A grand affair celebrating Palliative Care Volunteers
MORE than 60 volunteers attended the annual Little Haven Palliative Care Volunteers morning tea at the Civic Centre yesterday.
"The morning tea celebrates the volunteers... and thanks them for the contributions they make," Little Haven's business manager Sue Manton said.
The annual event is one of the many features of Little Haven Week as a sign of recognition for the work that all volunteers do for the community.
Volunteer songsters The Gympie Songbirds were on hand to provide entertainment and soon had the crowd singing along to all the classic tunes.
Little Haven Week started last Friday with a series of dining experiences over the weekend. It ends this Saturday with a Gratitude Walk and Fun Run at the Gympie Showgrounds and a memorial service on Sunday.
The Gratitude walk is an opportunity for participants to raise much-needed funds for the association and to honour those who have died.
The memorial service will be held at the Gympie Wesleyan Church in Exhibition Rd. All are welcome to attend to pay tributes to and remember those who are no longer with us.
