A busy week ahead!

Join us in the coming 'Volunteers Week' to take time to thank the amazing people in our community that help make Hardie Park happen on a daily basis. In the cafe, around the park, behind the scenes, securing grants, picking up surplus food, administration, banking, the list goes on. Without these people it just wouldn't happen. 

Community minded people, giving their time, caring and sharing is a magic formula. As you know we always ask for extra help, it could be a couple of hours a week that could change YOUR life. Here's just a few of our volunteers pictured enjoying their time with us.
