A much-loved HBNC team member has been honoured for her contribution to the community.

Maureen Hall, manager of HBNC's Aged and Disability Services team, was a nominee for this year's Zonta Yellow Rose Award.

The Yellow Rose recognises and celebrates women in the Hervey Bay community who have made a significant impact on the lives of others through their employment, volunteer activities, and associations.

Maureen was nominated by HBNC CEO, Tanya Stevenson, in recognition of her tireless work for the Hervey Bay community.

"In Maureen's work at the Hervey Bay Neighbourhood Centre, she had been the Manager of Aged and Disability Services, overseeing a team of staff and volunteers. She has coordinated over 9500 trips for the elderly to access the community and worked tirelessly through COVID to provide transport for renal patients," Tanya said in her nomination.

"In addition, Maureen has provided personal support to those going through breast cancer and who have experienced the loss of a loved one, with bedside support, meals and loan of her vehicle.

"She dedicated her personal time and resources to supporting those who are vulnerable."

This Yellow Rose Award went to Jasine Leslie, who turned the vision of a local palliative care facility into the reality that is now the Fraser Coast Hospice. All funds raised from the lunch will be donated to Myriam’s Cottage.

Congratulations, Jasine, and congratulation Maureen on being nominated!
