Spring has sprung!  It's been a long cold winter, so let’s hope that this means success for our farming community.

We are pleased to announce that Andrew Cowin has been appointed to a vacancy on the CLRS Board.  Andrew has shown strong support and commitment to our organisation, and we look forward to him making a valued contribution to the governance of CLRS.  As part of Andrew's induction he visited some of our sites, including Recyclability.  Pictured below is Andrew with Recyclability volunteer Kim Boland.  Kim was telling Andrew that she enjoys volunteering at Number 4, and has been helping 3 days a week for the past twelve months.  During this time Kim has become very confident meeting new people, serving customers and undertaking a whole range of administrative duties.

This week we applied for the Volunteering Victoria 2016 Awards in two categories - Innovation and Inclusion.  We could have applied in all the categories, as Recyclability is a social enterprise that provides so many opportunities for volunteering.  We have volunteers from as young as 7 years and our oldest volunteer is 87 years.  Volunteers come from all walks of life, including school students, retirees, people with disability, job seekers and corporate volunteers.  The ANZ staff team in Echuca have registered to become CLRS volunteers and will be volunteering during work time at Recyclability.

We have received very generous donations in the last month for our Opening Doors Project.  Thank you to Moama Community Village Lions Committee who donated $5,000 and the Moama RSL who donated $15,000.  We hope to have the tender documents completed in the very near future for the Opening Doors Project - a home and 2 units for people with disability.  We are very much looking forward to this project coming to fruition. 

On another note, check out of facebook page to see the video of some of our youngest supporters!  We captured some great insights from some of the young children who were part of the Johnno’s Run team.
