Our work would not be possible without the help of our volunteers who bring their enthusiasm and commitment to a range of roles, from fundraising to transporting cancer patients to treatment facilities.
Each month we acknowledge the volunteers who demonstrate our core values of innovation, responsibility, courage, and collaboration.
March 2022 volunteer recognitions
|Claudia St John||Responsibility||Laura Muir||Claudia provides high quality support to people affected by cancer seeking access to free legal, financial and workplace advice and assistance through Cancer Council’s Pro Bono Program, and assists the service 2 days per week in a volunteer capacity. Recently, we received feedback from two health professionals who requested assistance on behalf of their client, they said: “Hi! I wanted to pass on a thank you to Claudia for the support she provided earlier today with the referral for John. We really appreciate the time taken to confirm his eligibility for the program and feel reassured he will receive the support he needs to make updates to his will. With thanks and warmest regards from my colleague and myself!” Claudia, you are an absolute asset to our team.|
|John Sykes||Courage & Responsibility||Fiona Markwick||Speaking up about a concern regarding a potential COVID case that may have impacted patients undertaking treatment in Dubbo.|
Thankfully all was ok!
|Gaby Aubrey||Collaboration||Cassandra Sullivan||Gaby started with CC just before Stars of Orange and has hit the ground running helping bring to life not one, but two Stars events in as many months! Gaby’s can-do attitude and flair for social media, PR and marketing have been such a gigantic help and have made a real difference to the running of these events! Thank you Gaby!|
