The show could not go on without a little help from our friends

Nambour Civic Centre volunteers Kendall and Yokki

Following on from the recent National Volunteers Week, Council’s Nambour Civic Centre is celebrating their loyal volunteers, as well as encouraging others in the Sunshine Coast community to get on board.

Nambour Civic Centre boasts an array of quality entertainment right in the heart of Nambour. It has achieved great success this year delivering some great entertainment including the recent Vance Joy concert, Queensland Theatre Company’s stage production of Boston Marriage and will soon welcome Aussie music icons Glenn Shorrock and Brian Cadd to the stage.

These shows, however, would not go on without the help of Nambour Civic Centre’s volunteers who dedicate their time and passion to ensuring audiences have a fun and welcoming experience when visiting the venue.

Two such volunteers are Kendall and Yokki, aged 73, who have been volunteering with the Nambour Civic Centre for the past 12 months, and could not speak more highly of their experience.

Kendall and Yokki said volunteering offered  the opportunity to learn new skills, meet and greet people from all walks of life, see a variety of shows and, most importantly, be part of the friendly and dynamic team at the Nambour Civic Centre.

“It feels good to help in the community and provides the opportunity to step out of your comfort zones,” they said.

“You are never too old to learn new tricks.”

The warm-hearted couple volunteer at five other organisations and causes including Refugee Support Groups, Woodford Folk Festival, Wolvos, and Fraser Island Lighthouse.

Kendall and Yokki are great ambassadors for volunteering and encourage others in the Sunshine Coast community to get involved.

There are still plenty of more exciting shows to come, so if you are interested in volunteering at the Nambour Civic Centre, call the friendly staff on 5475 7777 for more information or visit
