Celebrating an amazing year with volunteers

In recognition of the invaluable contribution volunteers make to our organisation, Very Special Kids hosted an end-of-year Christmas gathering with all Friends and Family Services Volunteers.

It was a relaxed evening with live music, a delicious BBQ dinner and drinks, as well as a special visit from Santa – the perfect way to celebrate what has been a great year.

We say it time and time again, but Very Special Kids simply could not do what we do without the support of our volunteers.

The generosity of 180 Friends Volunteers who assist us with fundraising and a team of over 250 Family Support Team volunteers who commit many hours working directly with our families ensure that we can continue providing the best possible care to over 900 families throughout Victoria each year.

This year, Very Special Kids volunteers have given back an amazing 27,658 hours of invaluable support to our organisation and the families we care for.

On behalf of the team at Very Special Kids, we wish to say a sincere thank you to all volunteers who keep us running. Without these treasured people who make up the Very Special Kids jigsaw, we simply couldn’t do what we do.
