Volunteer devotee retires after 16 years in Community Health

Outgoing Peninsula Health Coordinator Gloria Callery.

Peninsula Health is saying farewell to Gloria Callery after more than 16 years of service to Peninsula Health.

A Community Health Volunteer Coordinator during that time, Gloria’s contributions have been immense, redesigning the Community Health volunteer services and working with the community to engage more community organisations.

“It has been a privilege to work with our volunteers – their dedication, commitment and kindness shown has a trickle-down effect in our community. I have seen first-hand the impact that their willingness to lend a hand can have on staff and patients alike,” she says.

“Volunteers are an invaluable support to many of our services. Not only that, they are great company. The world is filled with truly amazing people.”

Peninsula Health Early Intervention in Chronic Disease (EliCD) Program Manager Lin Rabbage says Gloria’s commitment to evolving the volunteer programs within Community Health has strengthened the volunteer base.

“Gloria’s enthusiasm and energy is infectious, so it’s no surprise she was well liked by her colleagues, managers and the volunteers. The skills and attributes she brings will be extremely hard to replace,” says Lin.

“I wish her all the very best in retirement, a well-deserved opportunity to start a new chapter in life.”
