The Club Taree Community Team has received State recognition for its continued volunteer service.
The team was awarded the 2019 Mid North Coast Volunteer Team of the Year. The award is part of The Centre for Volunteering's annual awards program.
Club Taree Community Team leader Paul Allan said the team continues to go above and beyond in each of the initiatives it develops.
"We are incredibly proud of the Club Taree Community Team on being named as the Volunteer of the Year in the Mid North Coast NSW Volunteer of the Year Awards in this our fifth anniversary year," Mr Allan said.
"To date since we started the Club Taree Community Team in 2015 they have raised close to $390,000 for our local and regional community and volunteered in excess of 7000 hours.
"We started the team so that our staff would have an outlet to create a positive difference in our community, we are so thankful and appreciate that our community continues to value our commitment."
As a regional finalist, the team is invited to attend the State ceremony in Sydney for the announcement of the 2019 NSW Volunteer Team of the Year.
Club Taree president Geoff Watman was thrilled the team was being recognised for its hard work.
"Congratulations to the Club Taree Community Team on another fine achievement," Mr Watman said.
"As a club we are extremely appreciative of their commitment, and continue to be in awe of their continuous enthusiasm."
The club will join the winners of the Mid North Coast Adult Volunteer of the Year and Senior Volunteer of the Year at the ceremony in Sydney.
The awards have grown to become one of the largest celebrations of volunteering across Australia.
The Centre for Volunteering chief executive officer Gemma Rygate said all 48 members of the Club Taree team have given so much to the local community.
"The club's volunteers have demonstrated the true value of volunteering for people in towns and communities across the region," Ms Rygate said.
"Over the past 12 months alone, they have given almost 1300 hours of their time to help raise more than $100,000 for so many worthwhile organisations."
In 2018, the team was named as one of three contenders for the Corporate Volunteer Team of the Year in the NSW Volunteer of the Year awards.
The team is also a finalist in the Heart of the Community and Clubs in Collaboration awards at the upcoming ClubsNSW Clubs and Community Awards.
The winner will be announced next month.
The team picked up the Heart of the Community award in 2018.
