The StepUp CapRescue Volunteer program hit a major milestone in 2021, recording its highest number of volunteer hours across a single year.
Caitlin Buttenshaw, Community Fundraising Officer for RACQ CapRescue, said: “In 2021, our StepUp CapRescue volunteers donated over 1,230 hours of their time, which is our biggest year yet. According to the current Volunteering Queensland wage rate, that equates to over AUD$55,000 in value for CapRescue.”
NVW is Australia’s largest annual celebration of volunteering and is a chance to celebrate, recognize and thank volunteers for the vital work they do within their communities.
“Our volunteers continue to show an enormous amount of dedication, hard work and commitment all year round. We cannot thank them enough for their time and skills, and the enthusiasm they bring to each volunteering role,” Buttenshaw added.
