Volunteer for Knox Expo May 2023
After eight months of planning we were thrilled to bring another Volunteer Expo to Coonara Community House in Upper Ferntree Gully, the home of Volunteer for Knox, as a lead in to National Volunteer Week 2023.
Thirty five community groups including the Office of the Public Advocate, Bridges Connecting Communities, Knox SES, Upper Ferntree Gully CFA, The View Club, Boronia and Basin News, Eastern Regional Libraries, Girl Guides and Puffing Billy Railway Station came along to the expo to speak with prospective volunteers about their organisations.
The schedule of events was jam packed and also full of family entertainment such as Myuna Mobile Farm, a Giant Bubble Artist, Tonyi the worm, For the Love of Dance session, games, raffles, cheese toasties and soup, Bunnings potting workshop, fresh popcorn and live music.
From 12-4pm we had around 450 people attend.
