Queensland Volunteer of the Year Award 2022

Finalist: Anne-Maria Falvey
Ipswich Hospital Foundation, Rosies – Friends on the Street, St Vincent de Paul, St Paul’s Anglican Church

Anne-Maria has been a volunteer at the meet & greet desk at one of the entrances of Ipswich Hospital over the past 10 years, her role is one of the most important, being a bright and friendly face to all who visit. She stays busy assisting patients and visitors, answering general enquiries, and contacting staff. As an important figure at the hospital, when Anne returned to her beloved volunteering role after the COVID-19 restrictions, she was bombarded by staff and patients welcoming her back or letting her know how much they have missed her.
