Woodlands volunteer driven to help

WOODLANDS resident Ken Talbot loves his volunteer role so much that he has been doing it for 22 years.

Mr Talbot drives the courtesy buggy at Queen Elizabeth II Medical Centre in Nedlands, where he helps patients and visitors get around the large site.

“I enjoy the chance to meet people and make them laugh,” he said.

“I have a lot of fun with the ‘old girls’.

“You get some real characters on the buggy and it’s always a bit of fun. Laughter really is the best medicine.”

The courtesy buggy service runs on weekdays from 9am to 4pm and is seeking volunteers who have a valid driver’s licence and able to give their time.

Call the centre’s volunteer co-ordinator on 6457 4085.
