Congratulations to Sandra Munro who was nominated for the City of Ryde's Volunteer Recognition Award and was recognised for her nomination at the City of Ryde Volunteer Recognition Awards Night, which was held on Thursday May 11th 2017. Sandra has been a regular Meals on Wheels volunteer for over 2 years. She is a wonderful team member who has brought warmth and enthusiasm to the role.
Sandra is a client in our social housing outreach program who has participated in many of our activities over the years such as art classes. One day Sandra revealed she was a bit sick of staying around her unit all the time. Thanks to the support of one our volunteers who taught Sandra to read, she felt more confident and decided to do something to help others. Sandra has become a great asset to the team. We would like to thank her for always bringing her wonderful smile, willing hands and great navigation skills.
Sandra's story shows how important it is to assist our clients to participate in community life and feel socially included. Our programs are focused on delivering client goals in-line with the outcomes individual clients wish to achieve.
