Volunteers in the Brunwsick Junction community have come together for a thank you in recognition of their contributions.

A thanksgiving service was held at the St Peter’s Anglican Church on Wednesday, attracting about 20 representatives of local community groups.

The service has been running for around a decade and is an opportunity to acknowledge those who work to give back to the town.

Brunswick Red Cross president Judy Talbot was pleased with the attendance at this year’s event.

“I was very thrilled that there was so many people there,” she said.

St Boniface Cathedral Dean Darryl Cotton lead the service, wearing his Mission to Seafarers uniform in recognition of his volunteer work for the organisation.

Some groups read a prayer, while others outlined some of the work they do to help the community.

Among the organisations represented were the Brunswick Red Cross unit, Brunswick Junctions Lions Club, Brunswick Junction Community Resource Centre and the Country Women’s Association.

The service is traditionally held during National Volunteer Week, though it was delayed this year to ensure a organist was available for the event.

A morning tea was hosted by the Brunswick Red Cross unit following the service.
