Volunteers show true community spirit

NCC CivicAwards EDMBanner.V1.2

Volunteers selflessly give their time and energy to improve the lives of others in Napier.

Tonight seven of those hardworking volunteers have been honoured for their efforts in the 2021 Civic Awards ceremony led by Napier Mayor Kirsten Wise at the Napier War Memorial Centre.

Volunteering is a worthwhile way to contribute to our neighbourhoods and Napier, she says.

“These seven individuals are a snap shot of the dedication and commitment central to the world of volunteering. I acknowledge their hard work and enormous efforts on behalf of us all.”

This year’s recipients are: Graham Duley, Ian Jones, Janice Winter, John Wuts, Vyron Russell, Colin James and Bronwyn Watson.

Collectively their contributions have supported hundreds, if not thousands in the Bay and beyond.

The organisations they have been proudly associated with include: the Greendale Services Association, Christian Lovelink, Project Prima Volta, Hawke’s Bay Rugby Union, Girl Guiding New Zealand, Napier Grey Power, and Napier Lions Club.

Each year the City benefits from the service of volunteers who go above and beyond the call of duty for Napier, its people and the environment, recognising their exceptional contributions.

Napier City Council has honoured these humble unsung heroes with awards for more than 40 years.
