WOW -- Wear Orange Wednesday
National Volunteer Week (NVW) is Australia’s largest annual celebration of volunteers. From Monday 17th to Sunday 23rd May 2021, NVW will celebrate the significant contribution of Australia’s almost six million volunteers. Each year these volunteers dedicate over 600 million hours to help others. The theme for NVW 2021 is RECOGNISE (celebrate and thank volunteers for the vital role they play in our lives), RECONNECT (to what is important by giving our time to help others and ourselves) and REIMAGINE (how we better support volunteers and communities they help). As part of NVW, Wear Orange Wednesday (WOW) was a chance for people to recognise the efforts of volunteers. The Parkes telescope turned orange in support of the NSW State Emergency Services (SES) volunteers who, amongst many other things, help the Parkes Observatory out at big public events.
