A valued Foodbank volunteer and Bunbury Rotary member went out of his way to help a welfare agency in need last week.

After hearing Pemberton United Church had no way of getting Foodbank’s emergency hampers from Bunbury, Dennis Evans took it upon himself to respond to the call.

“As a member of Bunbury Rotary, I thought we could team up with Foodbank and help deliver the 30 hampers,” Mr Evans said. “They were very appreciative of my time ,but honestly, I didn’t mind doing it, I’m always happy to help out a community in need.”

The retired volunteer has been with Foodbank for 15 years.

“One of my duties involves going to Donnybrook and picking up fruit to bring back,” he said.

“I love being a part of Foodbank, it keeps me occupied and allows me to give back to the community.”
