On Friday May 24th the morning was devoted to saying a massive THANK YOU to our incredible Bloomhill volunteers.

Every year during National Volunteer Week the staff get together to ensure the vollies get spoilt. A sumptuous breakfast is served on the cafe deck and surrounds. Volunteers who have served for 5, 10 and 15 and were also recognised with certificates.

A special acknowledgement was made for Lyn Cheffers who was awarded a 20 year certificate and shared many fond memories of volunteering and fundraising adventures

We also said a fond farewell to three incredible long standing volunteers who have now retired and will be lovingly missed.

Margaret Dowzer 18 years at Buderim Op Shop, Trevor & Elaine Finch - 18 years volunteering, including setting up a large number of our Bloomhill Op Shops from the ground up
