Man wins award for service

WELLY Munro, age 74, has been helping people for years in his working and private life and has no intention of stopping.

His selfless service to his community was highlighted after being awarded a Rotary Paul Harris Fellowship award, for his service to the organisation, on Monday.

“I don’t feel my age. I’ve been in Rotary 33 years and I just like helping people,” he said.

“Rotary is a service club and the motto is service above self.”

Many Rotarians represent a business in the community and Mr Munro is a passionate advocate of pharmacy, a career he loves and refuses to retire from.

“(Pharmacists) are helping people. It’s so human; we see a lot of sick people. You think you’re sick when you have a cough or cold, but that’s minor compared to some of the tribulations,” he said.
