Ian Kiernan AO, Chairman of Clean Up Australia says that every day volunteers make a huge contribution to society in both economic and social terms. “Those brave young men who became our first ANZACs were volunteers; our surf lifesavers are volunteers; our rural fire fighters are volunteers, the thousands of overalled SES workers are volunteers. Without volunteers, we’d be lost,” Ian said.
