DEDICATED volunteer Keith Revell has always put the needs of others before his own.

Well known for his role in various community organisations throughout the past two decades, Mr Revell was always there to lend a hand.

With more than 25-years of volunteering experience under his belt, Mr Revell has been recognised for his commitment to the Logan community by being named this year's Volunteer of the Year.

Thanking him for his time and dedication to the community, Logan Mayor Pam Parker congratulated Mr Revell at the recent Logan Loves Volunteers event in Springwood on Sunday, October 15.

"Keith has been involved in various community organisations including the Queensland Honorary Justices, State Emergency Service, Volunteers in Policing, Meals on Wheels, a Justice of the Peace and a child witness support volunteer with Protect All Children Today (PACT)," she said.

"Keith's love and care for people within his community is extraordinary and I congratulate him on receiving this award."

Councillor Parker also met with more than 350 registered Logan volunteers on the day, who were rewarded with a day of pampering, live entertainment and great food.

"Here in Logan we have more than 7000 volunteers who continually put others before themselves," she said.

"The Logan Loves Volunteers event is the council's way of publicly acknowledging and thanking volunteers for their tireless efforts throughout the city.

"It is crucial that we as a community acknowledge that volunteer time is a real donation that is as valuable as money.

"To pick one of those as the city's top volunteers was an extremely difficult job as there are so many outstanding volunteers in our community and they should all be congratulated for their unwavering commitment."
