The hard work of one of Concorde Aged Care Home’s volunteers has been recognised after she received a Rotary Club award.
Rupa Sheth was selected for the Unsung Hero Award by the Rotary Club of Mill Point for her contribution to the South Perth home and the local community.
She will be one of only two recipients in the category recognised at the club’s award ceremony on Friday, February 5. Rupa will also receive a $500 donation from the club that will go to a charity of her choice, Feed the Little Children.
The award comes just weeks after she received a certificate of appreciation from the City of South Perth for her volunteering efforts. Rupa recently celebrated nine months of working at Concorde, where she attends several days a week and assists with resident activities and serving meals.

“I first visited the home when my daughter was volunteering here, as part of her school’s mercy program,” Rupa said.
“I wanted to help a charity or a group since it’s always been a dream of mine, but I was concerned that if I just gave money, I couldn’t be sure it would get to the people in need.
“So instead I chose to give my time to the residents. A smile on their face every day is what I aim for.”
Rupa said she focused on making the residents feel at home and she thoroughly enjoys her time at Concorde.
Congratulations Rupa on this incredible achievement.
