Recognition for Excellence and Dedication to DoncareNews
Doncare congratulates Kerrie McMahon and Lia Henry who were both presented with Pride of Workmanship awards in recognition of their commitment and dedication to Doncare and the community. The Rotary Club of Templestowe’s annual Pride of Workmanship Award was an excellent evening for all concerned. Organised by IPP James Cunningham, Kerrie and Lia were recognised for their high level of excellence in their vocation and outstanding service to the community. The Rotary Club of Melbourne established the Vocational Service Award in 1964.
Kerrie McMahon has been the Corporate Services Manager at Doncare for five years. She is an extraordinairy woman who not only juggles the duties and requirements of human resources, finance, budgets and quality audits for accreditation but immerses herself willingly to support all staff, volunteers and the community. Kerrie regularly assits on weekends in the Doncare Op Shops and coordinates many other fundraising activities for Doncare. She is an active community volunteer in cricket, basketball and the school library. Kerrie’s also involved in Learning Difficulties Australia. Kerrie’s dedication and hard work make her a worthy recipient for a Pride Of Workmanship Award.
Lia Henry has worked at Doncare for almost ten years, she has held a variety of positions, being the receptionist and the Grants writer for seven years raising more than a million dollars in grants. She is currently the Executive Assitant to the CEO and Board and has held this position for the past three years. Lia is a tireless worker who is always willing to take on additional responsibilities, she helps in the Op Shops on her days off and weekends when needed. Lia coordinates volunteers to do gift wrapping for both Christmas and Mothers Day at The Pines shopping centre to raise funds for Doncare. Following the recent resignation of the Grants writer a State Government Tender was due. Lia wrote the tender by starting at 5am and worked into the night to complete the tender and meet the timelines required. Her attention to detail is nothing short of excellent, she is hardworking, determined and passionate in everything she does and consequently is a perfect candidate for the Pride of Workmanship award.
Congratulations from all of the staff and volunteers at Doncare!
