It’s the little things that make a difference

“It is the little things that make a big difference.” This is what drives Vicki Royer, winner of the Huon Valley Citizen of the Year Award, to make a contribution to her community.

From the age of 13, Vicki has been contributing to her community in various ways. She pays tribute to her mother for instilling in her a desire to help others.

Her efforts with Relay for Life have led her to raise over $14,500 and she’s been recognised by Cancer Council as one of the top fundraisers.

Vicki says she’s never been one to sit on the sidelines and just watch. Getting involved and participating is her hobby.

“I have found my talent is pulling things together. So long as I have people around me to help, I have found that we can make a big difference.”

Vicki received her award at our 2022 Australia Day Awards and her contribution showcases the difference community members can make through volunteering their time to different causes.

Our Volunteer Service Awards are currently open for nominations so if you know someone in your community whose volunteering work is worthy of recognition then go ahead and nominate them. Be a part of celebrating what makes communities thrive by helping to acknowledge the people who have put in years of service to a volunteering role.

The Huon Valley Council Volunteer Service Awards are presented annually to recognise the achievements and contributions made by the many volunteers of the Huon Valley municipal area. These awards are presented during National Volunteer Week in May each year.

Nominations are now open for the 2022 Volunteer Awards.
