Long-time volunteer calls it time on his volunteering services

Published on: Tuesday, May 30, 2023

Con Vandenberg, a dedicated and inspiring long-time volunteer and a true legend has called it time on his volunteering services.

For 22 years, Con turned up three days a week to help clients who relied on the transport services offered by the City’s Community Care Services team to get them to and from their destinations.

Con is described a “no-fuss kinda man” who never looked for recognition, but when he announced he was calling it time on his voluntary duties, the City’s Community Care Services team recognised his amazing contribution as the special guest at their National Volunteer Week lunch.

In a speech prepared by Ron Carey, Member of Community Care Advisory Committee, the 93- year-old had dedicated over 19,800 hours of his life to volunteering with the City. He covered over 66,000 kilometres getting to and from the transport depot from his home in Beechboro, to assist clients as a volunteer driver and quality care giver. One of the City’s longest standing volunteers. 

 “On behalf of Members of the City of Swan Community Care Services Advisory Committee, all past and current volunteers, all the clients you have helped over the years and staff, we say thank you for your invaluable years of service,” Ron said.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer with our fantastic Community Care Services team, please call 9267 9064.
