What’s Coming Up
Meet Danielle Lam & Charles Ng Ping Cheun
This month we are featuring our fabulous volunteer team Danielle Lam and Charles Ng Ping Cheun.
Charles and Danielle started out in January of 2022 as grocery shoppers for the shelter and now sort and prepare hampers for Kerby delivery clients.
Charles and Danielle first came to Kerby for the community, the events, and programs such as Spanish.
They keep coming back to volunteer because of “the joy of helping those in need, and social interaction.” “We meet the members, guests and staff who are all very friendly. The Kerby cafe is a relaxing place to have lunch or coffee with friends.”
They are active gardeners and enjoy walking. “The best walk we did was in Spain, the Camino de Santiago, the French way which is 760 kms long. It took us 35 days.”
They also like to travel. “One of our favorite vacations was a trip to Peru and Bolivia in 2019. We were in a group of 25 family members and friends from all over the world. It was a memorable trip, visiting places like Machu Picchu, Uyuni salt flat in Bolivia, and the floating island on Lake Titicaca. Also, what was important in this trip was to reconnect with family whom many of us had not seen each other for a long time”
So far, Charles and Danielle have contributed over 100 hours combined.
Thank-you, Charles and Danielle, for all you do for the Kerby Centre!
John is our longest-serving volunteer, having started in June 1999. He has been a Meals on Wheels driver for 23 years, spearheaded the fundraising for our Fitness Centre equipment and is now the caller for our weekly Bingo program. He is also involved as a volunteer with many other community organizations. He worked for many years as part of the City’s Electrical Department and has kept busy all through his retirement. He loves to help others, be involved in his community, and his family is his most treasured possession. His smiling face and friendly disposition have made him a favourite with the Veiner Centre members and Meals on Wheels customers.
John’s personal motto is “Help Others” and he certainly lives up to it!
Thank you, John, for your decades of service to Veiner Centre and Medicine Hat!
