VNews NT - special edition NT Volunteer of the Year Awards

Winners announced. The top prize in the annual NT Volunteer of the Year Awards has broken tradition with the announcement of two equal winners in the Volunteer of the Year Award.

This deserved recognition goes to Frank Dunstan, St John Ambulance (NT) and Neil Westbury from MJD (Machado-Joseph Disease) Foundation.
