Volunteers celebrated at Coolum Meals on Wheels lunch

IN RECOGNITION of National Volunteers Week which runs from May 20-26 the Coolum Beach Meals on Wheels said a collective thank you to their volunteers on Tuesday, May 21 with a gourmet lunch,  

Coordinator Gerard Rollo said that it was the least the organisation could do for their 150 volunteers.  

“This is a celebration lunch, and we can’t survive without our volunteers, and we love recognising that they generously give up their time to help us and we love making them feel part of this team and community.”  

The kitchen team put together a buffet that included lamb, chicken, fish, roast vegetables, and a decadent apple and rhubarb crumble for dessert which was all served up with celebratory drinks.   

With a team of 50 in the kitchen and another 100 delivering meals, the Coolum Meals on Wheels is literally going from “strength to strength”.  

“We are always happy to have new volunteers and we are not going anywhere despite some media coverage in regards to other organisations,” Gerard said.  

If you have some spare time and would like to give back why not volunteer with Meals on Wheels?
