Our community achieves great things everyday. Here are some ways in which we can acknowledge the contribution of those enriching Glenorchy’s culture, identity and community.
Glenorchy Volunteer Awards
The Glenorchy Volunteer Awards were established in 1994 to acknowledge the efforts of volunteers within the community, and to encourage the growth and recognition of volunteering. The awards are held each year in May.
Congratulations to the award recipients for 2021. We received over 70 nominations across six categories up to an incredible 10 000 hours of service.
