Caring Better Together: Volunteer, Malcolm

By November 6, 2019Volunteer

Ipswich Hospital Foundation Volunteer, Malcolm Axten has been recently acknowledged at the West Moreton Health ‘Caring Better Together’ Awards, which recognizes outstanding commitments that make West Moreton Health a safe place for people to work.

Malcolm Volunteers with Ipswich Hospital Foundation regularly, assisting on the hospital staff shuttle ‘Cars for Care’ service. He’s always got a friendly face and isn’t afraid to have a chat on the shuttle ride.

The highly commended, Malcolm said as a Volunteer, he has the pleasure of knowing he is doing something that helps others and keeps him active.

“It was a shock, to be honest, being nominated for the award, I was just doing my job.”

“I’m just happy someone thought I was doing a good job”

Malcolm recommends to anyone that what’s to give back to our community to Volunteer with Ipswich Hospital Foundation – even if it’s just an hour or two a week!

“As a volunteer, I get to interact with a lot of different people and have made some really nice friends, I love it,” he said.

Ipswich Hospital Foundation Board Chair, Neil Harding said he was extremely pleased, but not surprised that one of our Volunteers was nominated for an award.

“Our Volunteers are among some of the most dedicated and determined people in our community,”

“These are people who give of their precious time to support the health service and healthy programs across the West Moreton Region on any given day, going above and beyond!”

“We are extremely proud of Malcolm, he has certainly had some health challenges in his life and found volunteering through that,” he said.
