The Kings Park Guides have been named 2016 WA Community Volunteer Organisation of the Year in recognition for their outstanding contribution to the community.

The Kings Park Guides have been named 2016 WA Community Volunteer Organisation of the Year in recognition for their outstanding contribution to the community.

The prestigious award was presented at a gala dinner on 11 May during National Volunteer Week.

President Tony Lightman and Vice President Chris Olney accepted the award on behalf of the Kings Park Guides group.

The honour is awarded annually to an organisation which has shown innovative leadership and best practice in volunteering to result in a lasting and positive change in the community.

Volunteer Coordinator Larr Rose said the Guides were extremely deserving and thrilled with the award.

'Kings Park Guides are the first port of call for visitors to the park. They staff the Visitor Information Centre 364 days a year,' Ms Rose said.
'In 2015, they assisted more than 48,000 visitors from around Australia and the world.'

With 125 volunteers, the Kings Park Guides run the Visitor Information Centre and lead three free guided walks every day.

Ms Rose said a special feature of the guides was the longevity of their service.

'Two Guides have served 30 years and many more have been guiding for up to 25 years,' she said.
'About 50 per cent of the Guides have served for 10 years, which is an outstanding achievement.'

Now in its seventh year, the Western Australian Volunteer of the Year Awards acknowledge the remarkable contributions by individuals, volunteer-involving organisations and corporate volunteering programs around the State.

The awards provide a chance to thank the thousands of volunteers and celebrate their achievements.

Kings Park and Bold Park are proud to have five volunteer groups: Kings Park Guides, Friends of Kings Park, Friends of Bold Park, Honour Avenues Group and the Kings Park Volunteer Master Gardeners.

There are fantastic opportunities to get involved with Kings Park and Bold Park to suit all kinds of interests and passions; from horticulture and conservation, to visitor services and administration.
