Sally Gutman’s hard work in the community has been recognised after she was elected president of the Rotary Club of Welshpool in June.
Although her work as Hamersley Nursing Home’s Director of Nursing keeps her busy, she joined Rotary in 2011 to engage with the community.
“I joined after I saw Rotary members donate equipment for Belmont’s palliative care room while I was the Director of Nursing there and because I was looking for something to do out in the community," she said.
"You can fritter your spare time away on things that don’t really matter or you can have a lot of fun and achieve something.”
The group raise funds for a wide variety of community organisations like Foodbank and Sally is involved with activities at all levels, including helping at a sausage sizzle at Cannington Bunnings recently.
“Every cent we raise goes back into the community,” she said. “We recently donated 100 microscopes in two local schools to encourage students to get involved with science and we also funded a high school student to attend the National Science Forum.”
Congratulations Sally on this achievement.
