Pablo has been volunteering for Rise for nearly 7 years. He is now moving on to Melbourne to spend time with his children and grandchildren and of course continue his volunteering, something he is very passionate about - he loves to give.
His happy smiling face will be missed by all of the staff, volunteers and clients at Yirra Mia. He did an amazing job propagating, replanting, recycling and reusing all kinds of plants, pots and bird baths. He always made sure to have flowers on the tables outside whenever he was in to volunteer and was well known to our Thursday and Friday clients, always popping into the day centre to say hello. His wife Melanie recently joined us as a volunteer in our day centre providing some hand pampering for the clients and it has been so lovely having the both of them volunteering together.
We wish Pablo and Melania all the very best and give our grateful thanks for their support and contribution.
