Victoria County proudly announces the Big Bras d’Or Community Hall Volunteers as the top community volunteers for 2023! The group will represent Victoria County at the Provincial Volunteer Awards being held on September 25, 2023.
Big Bras d’Or Community Hall Volunteers achieved top marks in the three categories who were scored individually by the Volunteer Committee members. The group scored the highest for their Community Reach, Community Impact and Community Inspiration.On Sunday, June 25, 2023, on behalf of Victoria Council, the group was presented with a $500 honorarium from District 5 County Councillor, Fraser Patterson.
The Big Bras d’Or Community group is an energetic, hard-working, and generous group of tireless volunteers is the heartbeat of Big Bras d’Or. Since 2004, when a handful of community members formed to help bring their neighbours together, the core group of dedicated full-time volunteers who range in age from 10 years old to 80 years old, pitch in throughout the year. The community events, luncheons and breakfasts bring in needed financial support, which in turn, help those who find themselves in need. Whether it’s shelter and warm food distributed during the Fiona disaster or supporting a local individual or family needing help making ends meet, these volunteers are there for them.
Thanks to these volunteers’ unwavering dedication, the Hall has modernized the improvements made, including building a new roof, new accessible washrooms and the future looks bright. This caring group makes this Hall one of the busiest and most vibrant communities in the province.
We are extremely grateful to all our community volunteers who were nominated this year for their dedication and commitment. A total of 18 individuals/groups were nominated for the award!
