A passion for helping others in need has been a lifelong vocation for Dianne Lewis. A former police woman from Wangaratta, North East Victoria, she worked in the Women’s Division where she was responsible for the welfare of women and children, a role that took compassion and understanding.
After leaving the Police she mixed her knowledge of security with a love for talking with people as a security advisor at the Marriott, Grosvenor Square in London. Returning to Melbourne, Dianne became involved in volunteer work with Eastern Palliative Care, a not-for-profit home-based palliative care service. With a passion for genealogy, she became a biography volunteer, helping clients tell and record their life stories for themselves, their families and the community.
A frequent visitor to the Sunshine Coast, Dianne moved from Victoria in 2016. Soon after she began volunteering with Suncare and has been a regular at the Maroochydore Day Respite Centre with her own special brand of care. Dianne says it is a privilege to volunteer. Her greatest reward being able listen to their stories and help people of all different ages. "There are so many amazing opportunities to help in the community by volunteering," she said.
