Volunteer of the Month

Volunteer Youth

Kathy Himstedt of Sundale Community Services – Nominate by Rochelle Coombs


Kathy started the Sundale Palmwoods Auxiliary 20 years ago and continues to volunteer for them, managing the Sundale Care Centre shop, holding special events and fundraising. The Sundale shop in Palmwoods started 20 years ago in the Sundale Palmwoods Care Centre giving residents the opportunity to purchase items at affordable prices and within easy reach of their living arrangements. When people are unable to leave home to make purchases, Kathy will shop personally for the residents. The residents and their quality of life is always at the forefront of Kathy’s mind. Over the years, Kathy has raised over $100,000 for items needed in the care centre. As this nomination came through, Kathy was hard at it baking Anzac cookies and icing tarts for the Anzac Day service she puts on every year for the residents in the care centres.

Congratulations Kathy on the good volunteering you do, thank you!
