Recognising our volunteers

Community is at the heart of the National Trust and we couldn’t do our vital work without the support of our volunteers.

The National Trust Honours recognises our volunteers who have given outstanding service, like Mary Lamborn, who was acknowledged in the 2020 National Trust Honours Awards for her valuable contribution to the National Trust Shop in Killara, Sydney which is staffed solely by a team of dedicated volunteers.

Mary has been volunteering with the National Trust for 10 years. Her ability to support the shop, as well as her warmth and kindness to other volunteers ensured that she was a well-deserving winner of the prestigious Meritorious Service Award. Mary is pictured (left) with Neil Wykes OAM, National Trust (NSW) President, and Toni Maher, previous Women’s Committee Chair.

There are four Honours categories in total and the Meritorious Service Award is the second highest Honour which can be awarded to member and non-member volunteers of the National Trust in New South Wales. The category is limited to only six winners.

The National Trust’s Honours Awards are held yearly and provide an opportunity to recognise and acknowledge volunteers who demonstrate the vision and mission of the National Trust.

If you know a volunteer deserving of the award, please nominate them. Nominations for this year close Friday 27 August 2021.

  1. It is lovely to see our volunteers being acknowledged for the work they do. Certainly a feel good story. Thank you Neil and Toni for taking the time to come to the Killara Store to make the presentation to Mary.
