Mr Hudson is a finalist in the Volunteer category of the Aged and Community Services WA Excellence in Care Awards for his tireless work around the community. From volunteering at the organisation�s three care centres where he drives the bus for residents, to MC-ing events, and helping out with ad hoc jobs, Mr Hudson has become the community�s go-to man.
He also drives the village bus to transport residents to social events, drives the village courtesy buggy and assists SwanCare�s maintenance department providing technical advice from his former life as an engineer. SwanCare chief executive Graham Francis said he was hard placed to think of a more deserving finalist in the award category than Mr Hudson, who had been an outstanding volunteer in the SwanCare community for more than eight years.
�We are absolutely delighted that Laurie has been recognised for his exceptional work as a volunteer at SwanCare as a finalist in the ACSWA Excellence in Care Awards,� he said.
�Laurie genuinely cares about other people. He is driven to help others to the best of his ability, and never expects any accolades or acknowledgement in return. We�re wishing him the best of luck when the award winners are announced later in June.�
