Recognition of a long-standing volunteer

At Alberton, in Auckland, we recently held a special event to celebrate Bet Jamieson being awarded Honorary Life Membership of Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga.

This special membership was presented to honour and recognise Bet’s outstanding service to Alberton and heritage and her extraordinary contribution to the work of our organisation. Many who have visited Alberton over the years would have likely been welcomed at the front door by Bet, who was a volunteer for over thirty years!

“I have simply loved being involved, welcoming new and returning visitors to the house and I’ve really enjoyed working with Rendell and the other volunteers,” says Bet. Deputy Chief Executive Operations, Nicola Jackson came up from Christchurch to present Bet with her framed certificate, and attendees enjoyed a famous Alberton Pie Day Lunch in the Ballroom. It was a wonderful event to recognise the dedication of such a special volunteer! Thank you Bet!
