Bellyful Heart Awards


Bellyful would not exist without its wonderful volunteers. To recognise our volunteer’s dedication and commitment, this year we have introduced the Bellyful Heart Awards. These were presented for the first time at the Bellyful Conference & Training Weekend by our ambassador Pippa Wetzell and founder Jacqui Ritchie.

The first category of the Awards – the Enduring Heart Award – recognised our long serving volunteers. A total of 66 volunteers received these awards for service of 5 years or longer. Nineteen certificates and a gift were presented to volunteers who attended Conference. The remainder received them at local branch meetings.

The second category – The Shining Heart Award – recognised those branch volunteers who have made a significant contribution to their branch. Each Branch Coordinator was able to nominate up to 3 branch volunteers and a total of 41 nominations were received. Every one of these amazing volunteers received an award, and a copy of their citation written by their BC and a gift. Sixteen volunteers were presented with their awards at conference. Four extra special nominees were recognised for their outstanding contribution in 4 different categories – they were Lynnette Hurley (Administration & Communication), Kat Heath (Fundraising and Finance), Lisa McClennon (Deliveries) and Kate Fitzgerald (Cookathons).

Congratulations, and thank you to every single one of these wonderful Bellyful volunteers. Your contribution to Bellyful is enormous and very much appreciated.
