The Collie Smith Family celebrated and thanked their volunteers for their contribution recently at the Colliefields during a morning tea.

The celebration was to coincide with National Volunteer Week, held from May 20-26.

The week celebrates and acknowledge the generous contribution volunteers bring to organisations and to society.

The Collie Smith Family program co-ordinator Diane Blount thanked all the organisation's volunteers for their hard work.

"You're a special group of volunteers," she said.

"I just want to thank you all for your commitment, your enthusiasm, your support towards our programs, your support to our children and I can't speak highly enough of you all.

"You make our jobs so much easier."

The Collie Smith Family learning club co-ordinator Sheila Clow said the organisation couldn't survive without volunteers.

"Everyone brings something different to the table which is great.

"I value you for your contribution, and I also learn so much from your suggestions."
