Appreciating volunteers

LSV chief executive officer Catherine Greaves applauded those recognised for their outstanding commitment to lifesaving. "The Awards of Excellence is an opportunity to acknowledge the incredible people who support our fantastic organisation and its mission to prevent death and injury by drowning in all Victorian communities," Ms Greaves said.

"Without our volunteers, members, partner agencies and the aquatic community, our organisation simply could not deliver its amazing breadth of quality programs and activities. Every person is essential in helping LSV to achieve our goals.

"I am absolutely thrilled to recognise the hard work and achievements of our people during 2020-21 at the 2021 Awards of Excellence and congratulate our award winners, nominees and other members for their enormous efforts this season."
