Locals were encouraged to wear something orange this Wednesday 22 May 2024, to support and celebrate our local SES Volunteers. 

Tanya Davies MP, Member for Badgerys Creek said that Wear Orange Wednesday (WOW Day) is an important reminder of the selflessness and generosity these volunteers give to our community.  

“With the help of these local SES heroes we have made it through tough times,” Mrs Davies said.  

“On behalf of the entire community, I would like to express my gratitude to our SES Volunteers, who put service above self all year-round.”  

“This WOW day I am proud to see locals wearing a touch of orange to show their appreciation to our SES volunteers.” 

WOW Day forms part of National Volunteer Week, an annual celebration that honours and celebrates contributions of volunteers across the country.  

National Volunteer Week runs from 20-26 May 2024 and this year’s theme is ‘something for everyone’, recognising that everyone can find their role in volunteering and make a difference.
