Congratulations to Chorus finalist Mario for winning the Multicultural Volunteer Award at the Volunteer WA Awards 2018. Held on 24 May in Perth, it was a great night to celebrate Chorus volunteers and the fantastic work all volunteers do across the state!
Mario volunteers at the Chorus Multicultural Community Centre in Bull Creek every Wednesday assisting the Italian elders group. He helps in the kitchen with meals and loves interacting with customers and other volunteers.
He has been volunteering for Chorus for nearly 15 years and has no plans to slow down. He encourages everyone to take a step back and consider taking on a volunteering role.

Irrespective of what your background is, you can come along and become a volunteer in some areas in which you’ve got skills which you normally don’t use. And that’s really what it’s all about.
