MENS SHED VOLUNTEER WINS COMMUNITY SERVICE AWARD
Written on the 10 October 2018 by Kevin Conolly
Member for Riverstone Kevin Conolly yesterday presented Don Goodship with a well-earned Community Service Award in recognition of his ongoing involvement as a volunteer in his community.
Don has been volunteering at the Riverstone Neighbourhood Centre's Mens Shed for over 8 years now. Having recently celebrated his 90th birthday Don is not short of energy to help out his community fellows, devoting 3 days a week at the Mens Shed, lending a hand to members or sharing his skills and knowledge in engineering, woodwork and gardening advice. He has become a central hub of the Riverstone Neighbourhood Centre's Mens Shed.
Don's work at the Mens Shed follows a lifetime of community involvement and advice as a local councillor, P & C committee member and mentor to people with disabilities.
"I congratulate Don Goodship on his generous and enduring voluntary contribution to the community," Mr Conolly said.
