AFTER a lifetime volunteering and membership of a multitude of community organisations, Vois Bancroft has been nominated as Clarence Valley Citizen of the Year.

Mrs Bancroft's first foray into community work came at the age of 12 when she organised a concert to raise funds for the Red Cross and she hasn't looked back since.

Mrs Bancroft's numerous contributions include her involvement with the historical society, the school ladies' club, her work as a hall committee member, Uniting Church member, Tempomentals music group member, Telecross volunteer, Coastal Views correspondent and DEX talking newspaper producer.

Mrs Bancroft said she was surprised to hear of the nomination and was honoured and humbled to receive it.

"I'm just a nominee but it would be a great honour to actually become Citizen of the Year.

"No one actually volunteers to get recognition but it's nice to receive it anyway," Mrs Bancroft said.

Mrs Bancroft said she thought she received the nomination for her contribution to the community over many years and couldn't have achieved what she did without the help from family and friends.

"Without my husband Brein's support none of this would have been possible," Mrs Bancroft said.
