“Our photo contest is a great way to celebrate volunteerism, thank and recognize volunteers and shine a spotlight on the many individuals that contribute in many different ways in the province,” said Lawrie Portigal, president of Volunteer BC, in a press release.

“We are pleased to have received such a large number of photo entries that illustrate the immense pride that British Columbians have in their communities and for their volunteers.”
