National Volunteer Week takes place annually in May and serves to recognise the huge number of Australians who volunteer their time, skills and energy across the country. In the Clarence Valley we boast a higher than rural state average with 20.8% of residents undertaking formal volunteer work and many more engaged in informal arrangements. To thank volunteers for their significant contribution to our community and the organisations they serve, Clarence Valley Council and Volunteering Clarence Valley have joined forces to treat our Valley’s Volunteers to a special movie event. Volunteers can choose from 2 screenings, one in Yamba and one in Grafton with a free bus service operating between the two centres both days. Tickets are limited to 1 per person and bookings are essential as tickets are limited. The first screening is of Eddie the Eagle starring Hugh Jackman and Taron Egerton at the Saraton Theatre on Wednesday the 11th May. Doors open from 1.15pm. The second is Florence Foster Jenkins starring Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant which will screen at Yamba Cinema on Thursday the 12th May. Doors open from midday with tea and coffee available from 11.45am courtesy of Yamba Cinema. So come on volunteers, just this once make it about all about you and give us the opportunity to say thank you. To secure your ticket call Volunteering Clarence Valley at the New School of Arts Neighbourhood House on 6640 3811 or 6640 3812.
