Lesley Evans has been volunteering for various organisations in Hervey Bay, including the Hervey Bay Citizens Centre where she serves as Assistant Treasurer and Secretary and has contributed by sewing scrub caps for doctors and nurses during times of need.

Inspired by a sign seeking a member to take on the position of Assistant Treasurer at the Citizens Centre, Lesley decided to offer her skills in office work to contribute to the community.

One memorable experience during her volunteer journey was during the COVID pandemic when doctors and nurses at Wide Bay Hospitals faced a shortage of scrub caps. Lesley, along with Artslink, stepped in to make and provide many caps for the hospitals, leaving a significant impact.

For Lesley, volunteering has been fulfilling, providing her with opportunities to socialise and make a difference in the community. Her advice to others considering volunteering is simple - if you want to do it, just do it.
