Neighbourhood Houses Gippsland


A Wurruk Community House volunteer, Jade Bradley, was awarded the prestigious 2021 Victorian Social Housing – Frances Penington Volunteer Award on Thursday (5 May 2022), at an award ceremony held at Victoria Parliament House.

Jade was nominated for her invaluable work with the delivery of the original ‘Wurruk Community House Foodbank Outreach Program’ in the first year of Covid. 

Then last year, when our community demand outstripped capacity with the outreach program, and we successfully gained charitable status,  Jade worked tirelessly setting up and in-house delivery of the Wurruk Food Pantry, which was achieved in record time.

The Wurruk Food Pantry is a vital service, delivering much needed food relief for the community of Wurruk, as well as a way for many community members to connect with their community house and other community members.

Receiving this prestigious award acknowledges and recognises Jade’s fabulous contribution to Wurruk Community House.

We’re super proud of Jade and our wonderful team of volunteers!
