The 2020 City of Logan Volunteer of the Year, Deborah Bright. Nominations are now open for the 2021 awards.

The search is on for the most outstanding volunteers in the City of Logan.

Logan Loves Volunteers is held annually to thank local volunteers and volunteer organisations for the time, care and passion they provide to our community.

The event was scaled back last year in line with COVID-19 restrictions, with about 300 regular attendees participating online.

An invitation-only Logan Loves Volunteers breakfast will be at the Logan Metro Sports & Events Centre on Saturday, May 15.

City of Logan Mayor Darren Power said there was a good reason this event is called Logan Loves Volunteers.

“It is a meaningful way to honour, and thank, those who continue to put our community’s needs before their own,” Councillor Power said.

“It has been a challenging but rewarding 12 months and our volunteers have been standing by those in the community who have most needed it.

“The awards give us a chance to recognise their selfless acts and the dedication our volunteers show to others.”

Perpetual awards will be presented to the City of Logan’s most outstanding volunteer and volunteer organisation.

Nominations for the awards are now open, and can be made at logan.qld.gov.au/awards/volunteers

Nominations close on April 12.
