Broome CIRCLE, the Shire of Broome and Radio Goolarri have acknowledged the tireless efforts of local volunteers by launching a new podcast featuring interviews with volunteers from around Broome for National volunteer week. A new episode of the Better Together - Volunteer Tales podcast will be released each day during volunteer week, which runs May 16 to May 22, featuring one of the many volunteers in Broome and highlighting their experiences while on the job. Broome CIRCLE volunteer coordinator Cate Warne said the podcasts provided a light-hearted look at volunteering and that she hoped the anecdotes would serve to encourage greater volunteering in the community. “There are so many different ways to volunteer and often it’s the little things that make the difference,” she said. “We want to show the fun side of volunteering by telling these individual stories – and thank those people that give up their time for the betterment of our community.” After this week the podcast will continue on a monthly release basis until November, with interviews from a range of volunteers from community organisation to sporting clubs telling their stories. Shire of Broome president Harold Tracey said the culture of volunteering in Broome was extremely healthy. “The new podcasts are great in highlighting some of those volunteers in our community who might otherwise fly under the radar,” he said. “National Volunteer Week is a terrific time to recognise people in our community who give up their time so freely. “Volunteers are the lifeblood of Broome – a big thank you from the Shire for all you do for our community.” The Better Together - Volunteer Tales podcast can be found on soundcloud.com/goolarri-media.
