Volunteer shows dedication

BUNDABERG woman Sue Finsen reached a major milestone this week, racking up 10 years of volunteering.

The Bundaberg and District Neighbourhood Centre volunteer is just one of thousands of people in the region who work tirelessly for our hundreds of not-for-profit organisations.

Ms Finsen began volunteering at the centre as a way to fill in her time and was soon working three days each week and covering other volunteers’ shifts.

“It’s great because I have been able to meet a lot of interesting people,” she said.

“I would really encourage people to volunteer. It’s a worthy thing to donate your time to.”

Centre acting manager Dawn Murdoch said the centre could not operate without volunteers such as Ms Finsen.

“Sue is really friendly to all of the users at the centre,” she said.

“Everyone here knows that Sue looks after them and understands their needs.She really thinks ahead and she is an integral part of the centre. Sue is a really good example of a good volunteer and we appreciate what she does.”
