Bear Cottage Volunteers among the state's best

This year the 134 volunteers at Bear Cottage were honoured with the title of Northern Beaches Volunteer Team of the Year at the 2019 NSW Volunteer Awards.

For more than 18 years these volunteers have provided care and support for our families and patients at Bear Cottage.

Between them they provide more than 10,000 hours of support each year from helping with cooking meals to reading to and entertaining children and cleaning and housekeeping.

At the celebrations the MP for Manly James Griffin said "Volunteers form the fabric of our society and this is certainly true of Bear Cottage Volunteers, without whom Bear Cottage would not be the wonderful warm and welcoming home away from home."

We couldn't agree more - from all of us at SCHN we say thank you to all our volunteers for everything they do.

The Bear Cottage team are now in the running for the NSW Volunteer Team of the Year title which will be announced later in the year.
