Mackay Volunteer Expo
Mackay Senior Citizens Centre, 58 Macalister Street, Mackay
Saturday, June 8, 2019, 9am – 1pm
There will be hundreds of different roles on offer at the Mackay Volunteer Expo 2019.
The goal of the Expo is to match potential volunteers to roles that suit them, their time constraints and their talents.
There will be a role to suit everyone in the community.
Whether you want to be inside or outside and whether you want to help people, animals, the environment or the community, there will be something at the Expo for you.
And it doesn’t matter if you have a few days a week spare or just a few hours each year.
There are exciting opportunities for young people looking to upskill themselves and build their resumes as well as stay-at-home mums and dads looking for a social activity during school hours.
Even if you don’t fancy yourself as a potential volunteer, there is plenty at the Expo for families:
- Native plant giveaways
- Lucky door prizes
- Free engraving of goods by the Volunteers in Policing group
- See the Rural Fire Brigade’s fire engine
- Check out a Volunteer Marine Rescue boat
- Pat some cute kittens with the RSPCA volunteers
- Learn how to feed a baby wallaby
Food and drink will be available for purchase.
