‘Thanks’ from Louise

A group of local volunteers were treated to morning tea with MP Louise Upston.

A group of Cambridge volunteers were treated to morning tea on Monday, courtesy of local MP Louise Upston.  “More than one million New Zealanders are involved in some form of voluntary work in their communities, with an average of over three million hours volunteered every week,” Ms Upston said.

“I hosted a breakfast in my Cambridge office for a wide range of volunteers including Red Cross, St John and Cambridge Community House, among other volunteers who help make a difference in our schools and community.

“It’s wonderful that I get the opportunity to acknowledge the selfless work these volunteers do and thank them for their services to our community”, Ms Upston concluded.

The morning tea was in honour of last week’s National Volunteer Awareness Week.
