Congratulations to Patti Conway one of our valuable Hunter region volunteers. Patti was recognised as a FINALIST - NSW Volunteer of the Year 2017 at an award ceremony on Tuesday 12 September. This year there was a record number of nominations for the Volunteer of the Year Awards, with almost 110,000 volunteers recognised across the state in all categories. Thank you for all you do for MND NSW - we know you don’t do it for the recognition - but we appreciate your time speaking out and raising awareness and funds for MND NSW.
