For the past 44 years she has volunteered for the City of Subiaco Meals on Wheels and like other volunteers, Joan sees herself as being lucky to be able to do something that gives value to others.

John Nagle

John is a volunteer with Outcare who support offenders to become law abiding members of the community.  For 13 years John has successfully mentored young men both in and out of prison using sport as a pathway to reduce offending. John is passionate about rehabilitation and is a wonderful example to all that even the simplest of interactions can act as a powerful catalyst for positive change in an individual.

Peter Rudd

Peter is one of the quiet achieving volunteers who spread goodwill through our community in a humble and selfless way and devotes much time to raising funds for the Shenton Park Dogs Home. As a community volunteer Peter represents exactly what that expression means. He devotes his spare time to helping others in a formal and informal way, and does it all with a positive spirit and a willing smile.
