Since its beginnings in 1986, RangeCare has relied on the generosity of local volunteers to support the organisation in its efforts to provide the community with an exceptional level of care.  

Today, RangeCare has an incredible team of over 150 volunteers who typically contribute over 10,000 hours of their time each year. This generosity allows RangeCare to support our clients in living their best life by delivering a comprehensive range of services. 

Each year during the month of May it’s the time to celebrate National Volunteer Week. RangeCare likes to take this opportunity to celebrate their volunteers and share how their contributions have helped to shape RangeCare over the years. 

Recently, their long-term volunteer, Jim Coles, was awarded Sunshine Coast Senior Citizen of the Year at the Australia Day awards. This award was fitting recognition for Jim, as he continues to be one of the most beloved volunteers at RangeCare’s Op Shop in Mapleton. 

“Not only did Jim play an integral part in the foundation of Blackall Range Care Group, but he has also continued to support the organisation far beyond anyone’s expectations…It is volunteers and individuals like Jim that have made RangeCare into the community organisation it is today.” said RangeCare CEO, Greg Mannion. 

All of the team at RangeCare want to extend a huge thank you to every single volunteer at their organisation. No matter how many hours you contribute, every role is important to be able to help their clients live independently and happily.

RangeCare is always looking for more volunteers, so if you are interested in supporting your local community please contact 07 5445 7044 or email
