KNZB are thrilled to announce Carol Lamb as our Volunteer of the Month for May!
Carol has tirelessly patrolled Taupo a number of years documenting and collecting tonnes of rubbish from the wider Taupō area. Carol doesn’t discriminate, picking up rubbish from roads, reserves, walkways, paths and the lakefront.
Carol’s rubbish laden bicycle and bright yellow hatchback have become common sites around the district making Taupōa tidier place to live. Her particular passion is trying to keep the main northern entrance to Taupō, Wairakei Drive, clear of litter, which can amount to between 40kg to 50kg a month. Carol is an absolute inspiration who totally walks the talk when it comes to doing the right thing!
Thanks for all your efforts, Carol!
The winner of the New Zealand Couriers Volunteer of the Month receives $100, a KNZB tshirt, New Zealand Couriers bag, Klean Kanteen drink bottle and more – along with being automatically entered into the annual Beautiful Awards!
