BP Petrol Vouchers for 5000 Volunteers
9 June 2009 at 4:22 pm

BP Australia has notified nearly 5,000 volunteers from hundreds of Not for Profit organisations across Australia that they were the recipients of free fuel to assist them in their volunteering work.

As part of BP’s Vouchers for Volunteers program launched in April, the company is providing $250,000 worth of fuel vouchers to volunteers across Australia.

BP’s Corporate Social Responsibility Manager Dr Mark Glazebrook says BP received around 15,000 applications from across the country, demonstrating how the community is willing to dig into their own pocket in their efforts to help others.

Glazebrook says the e recipients are spread across a diverse cross-section of Australia and are performing invaluable roles in the community.

He says that because fuel can often be a significant expense for volunteers, this program provides a practical way for BP to say ‘thank you’ to some of the many dedicated Australians who freely give their time to help others.

Volunteering Australia National Communications Manager Peter Cocks says it’s great to see a large corporate like BP supporting volunteering at a grass-roots level.

He says thousands of volunteers will personally benefit from Vouchers for Volunteers as BP has ensured the benefits go to the individual volunteer who generously gives their time to help in their own community.

Successful applicants have been advised by email and a full list can be found at www.talkstoppedlongago.com.au
