Volunteer Vicki Axton remains content with being a quiet achiever, but her hard work has not gone unnoticed, as she is one of three finalists for the state government’s Volunteer of the Year awards.
The George Town Child & Family Centre volunteer will compete against two other candidates in the 2016 Department of Education RBF Awards, with the winners to be announced on October 28.
George Town Child & Family Centre coordinator Trudi Cross said Ms Axton worked hard to support children aged 0 to 5, and their families.
“I think the best thing Vicky does is she provides that beautiful surrogate grandma role,” she said.
Ms Axton said it was an honour just to be nominated.
