Russell Broadbent here, Member for Monash.
This is a just as I see it broadcast.
Today marks the beginning of National Volunteer Week.
As a nation, we’re quick to lend a helping hand to those in need.
Lots of us are doing it tough at the moment.
And we all know that one act of kindness sparks another.
That’s why we have nearly six million volunteers across Australia.
These are local people donating their time with a vision to improve local lives.
Whether it’s emergency services, soup vans, or op shops – if there’s a need, our volunteers are there.
So let’s give a big shout out to our volunteers across Monash – we see you and we thank you.
That’s just as I see it.
