Congratulations Joyce - you are inspirational!
Last year, during Seniors Week 2016, Mayor Simon Richardson of the Byron Shire council welcomed our elders on Tuesday at the Byron Bay Community Centre. One of our prized volunteers at the Byron Shire Respite Service, Joyce Bertenshaw, was given a Positive Ageing award for providing a role model and inspiring and encouraging others. Thank you Joyce, and all our volunteers for the joy you bring.
Volunteering is available for members of the community within our programs and operates throughout the Byron Shire. Volunteers are invaluable to the continuation of not-for-profit services and there are many roles available including enjoying activities with people at the centre, assisting workers on outings and bus trips, taking people to appointments.
If you are interested in selling raffle tickets or assisting in fundraising activities, we'd love to hear from you!
