Name: Jennifer Haimi
Where do you volunteer? Gladstone Visitor Information Centre
How long have you been volunteering there for? Over five years
Why did you choose to volunteer at the Gladstone Visitor Information Centre? Because I am a local and I love our region, I can share this passion with the visitors. I love the beauty of our harbour, which is where the information centre is located and that there are so many natural attractions in the region.
What is your favourite thing about volunteering?
Meeting people and hearing about their travelling stories. I meet Australians who are caravanning around the country and internationals that travel from the other side of the world to visit Heron Island. It’s also a very happy place to be as the people I meet are mostly on holidays, so of course they are very happy.
What would you say to encourage others to volunteer? I often encourage people to come and volunteer at the Information Centre because you would learn so much about the region and what it has to offer.
Thanks Jennifer! Gladstone News appreciate our local volunteers!
