Thank all volunteers during National Volunteer Week.

To protect the health and safety of our volunteers all WOW Day events have been cancelled.

We encourage the community to thank all volunteers during National Volunteer Week from Monday 18 May to Sunday 24 May 2020.

The NT SES is painting the town ORANGE for Wear Orange Wednesday (WOW Day) on 20 May and we want you to join in the fun. Get your family and friends to wear something orange to work or school to thank our SES volunteers.
