Local Announced As Senior Australian Of The Year

Share:

Starting as a cadet volunteer while still in Primary School, for more than 50 years Val Dempsey has dedicated her life to St John Ambulance, and year-on-year she still dedicates more hours than any other volunteer.

Recently she led 40 volunteers offering support following the Black Summer Bushfires, helping fire-affected communities during the emergency.

Then when the pandemic hit, Val personally contacted every volunteer to check they were okay in terms of welfare and mental health.

It’s led many in the community to know her lovingly as ‘Aunty Val’.
