Meals on Wheels Tasmania is a not-for-profit organisation which has been delivering meals to vulnerable people in the Tasmanian community since 1955. We deliver up to 250 000 meals annually to people and we couldn't do this without the help of volunteers. We are currently experiencing an extreme shortage of volunteers, particularly on the East Coast (St Helens and St Marys). Head to the Meals on Wheels Tasmania website for more information on how you can help.

As we continue to tackle our national waste challenges and protect our environment, Clean Up Australia is calling on all Australians to join with their local communities and take more immediate action by registering now for Clean Up Australia Day 2024 to be held on Sunday March 3. In 2023, over 760,000 Australians pulled on their gloves and gathered for the iconic Clean Up Australia Day. On March 3, 2024, Clean Up Australia is hoping to see a similar, if not better response, as generations come together to help tidy our local communities while seeing first-hand why we need to work together to prevent litter from entering our environment in the first place.
Trucks leave from the Glebe and head to Longford via Penquite Road, Quarantine Road to the Southern Outlet through Perth to Longford where they will park up for the day at the Longford Showgrounds.

And the most important bit is all money raised goes to the ROYAL FLYING DOCTOR SERVICE.
