Congratulations to John Swift, Wesley Mission’s Volunteer of the Year!
John has been visiting socially isolated older people in his community for over 27 years through Wesley Community Visitors Scheme. Not only has John faithfully visited the people he is formally connected with at his local aged care facility, but he also tries to reach out to anyone who looks lonely and would like a chat.
John was nominated by Dawn Brown who shared that John regularly displays the qualities of soft heart, sharp mind, hard feet and open hands.
CEO Stu Cameron sat down “virtually” with John to hear about his experience as a Wesley Mission volunteer.
