VOLUNTEER Reg Lambert (93) was honoured by the Rotary Club of Mandurah last night.

Mr Lambert received the Paul Harris Fellow Award in recognition of his work for the homeless.

Mr Lambert’s charity work includes setting up a group Focus to assist those less fortunate, fostering children and helping the homeless.

“We spent four years on the streets so we could understand them,” he said.

“I had to help people.

“Homeless people are not hopeless.

“Their ages range from nine years old to 78 years old.

“Many are lovely and intelligent people.”

Mr Lambert is leaving Mandurah tomorrow to continue their charity work in the Wheatbelt.
