Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : October 1 2008
16 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, October 2, 2008 MB NEWS Children move her Dianne Keller, of Croydon, has been nominated for volunteer award. Picture: Phil Blatch ~PP197980 SHIREEN KHALIL BIG-HEARTED Dianne Keller has been nominated for the 2008 Volunteer of the Year award. For the past 10 years, Ms Keller, of Croydon, has been volunteering with the Rain- bows program run by Inter- relate Family Centres. Ms Keller said the program, which assists chil- dren dealing with loss and grief, was close to her heart. ''I listen with a loving heart to chil- dren who have suffered the loss of a family member or a change in their family cir- cumstances,'' Ms Keller said. ''It is a great passion of mine to give kids the tools to cope with a change in their life.'' Ms Keller is also a volun- teer at the Cardinal Free- man Village in Ashfield, where she visits a resident and offers support. ''It was something I always wanted to do but I was working a busy job and didn't have time for these types of things. I feel like I'm giving something back to the community.'' The 2008 NSW Volunteer of the Year Award will be announced on International Volunteer Day, December 5. Entries closed earlier this week. There will be an over- all, senior, youth and cor- porate winner. The award is sponsored by the Cumberland and Courier Newspaper Group, in conjunction with The Centre for Volunteering. Last year's winner Mary Mamour, of Blacktown, de- voted her time to help young Sudanese migrants settle into the Australian lifestyle.
