Banyule Volunteer Awards Dinner

MR BROOKS (Bundoora) — On 14 May I was privileged to attend an awards dinner to recognise the fantastic contribution of volunteers in the Banyule community. I commend the award winners and highlight the contributions of just a few of the nominees. Maria Welsh volunteers with Banksia Palliative Care Service and facilitates the bereavement support group. Irene Somerville and Judith Chivers give their time every week to help Diamond Valley Foodshare provide food parcels to hundreds of needy families. Lisa Commandeur has served for seven years on the committee at Bundoora Preschool, most recently as treasurer; Lisa juggles work and family commitments to help make this a great local preschool. Des Harris volunteers at Rosanna Fire Station Community House and the Hub in Heidelberg West, helping people to gain skills in computer use. Dianne Rogers has volunteered for 17 years at Bundoora Extended Care Centre, including 10 years running the lolly trolley, with sales helping to improve the centre; Dianne has also helped to raise 21 foster children along with her own 4 kids. Finally, Bert and Lesley Westerman have both volunteered at Araluen since 2009, working with people with intellectual disabilities to improve their literacy skills. I commend all of the nominees for their selfless service to our local community. These wonderful people never seek any recognition for themselves. However, it is very important that we highlight their significant contributions. Well done.
