We asked Athol a few questions about his experience volunteering:

How did you get involved volunteering for your group?

My entry into volunteering with the Peel Harvey Biosecurity Group came through my membership with the SJ Landcare District Committee. In 2014, I became the Serpentine Jarrahdale Community Representative on to the committee developing the Biosecurity Group, which encompasses the Local Government areas of Harvey, Waroona, Murray, Mandurah and Serpentine Jarrahdale.

How long have you been involved in volunteering?

I started volunteering 40 years ago as a First Aid Instructor and ambulance driver with the Serpentine Jarrahdale Branch of St. Johns. 30 years ago, I became a member of the SJ Landcare District Committee.

What do you enjoy most about volunteering?

Volunteering creates a wider circle of friends and associates with the common purpose of improving our community.

Why would you recommend others to get involved in volunteering?

Anybody participating in a volunteer group will find their time gives great personal satisfaction and value to our society.
