VOLUNTEERS across the Ipswich region were recognised yesterday for the impact they have on their community.

International Volunteer Day ceremonies were held across the region.

Ipswich City Council staged a breakfast for the city's volunteers in the mall to thank them for their hard work and dedication.

Similarly the Somerset Regional Council held a high tea in Esk with more than 100 of the region's volunteers in attendance.

Ipswich Meals on Wheels volunteer Avril Pryde said the morning's breakfast was a great way to spend the morning with some of the city's other volunteers.

"It was a nice morning out," she said. "It was great to see and mix with the volunteers from lots of other organisations."

Mrs Pryde said the Ipswich volunteers appreciated the day, although they did their work without looking for any thanks.

"We all enjoy doing it anyway. We don't volunteer for any recognition."

International Volunteer Day, which is an initiative of the United Nations, has been held for more than 25 years to acknowledge volunteers for their efforts and contributions.
