When it comes to dedicated volunteers, you don’t need to look any further than Meals on Wheels Central Coast. Serving the community for 50 years, Meals on Wheels commitment to the Central Coast is demonstrated by the consistent stream of people lining up to volunteer for this respected organisation.

Giving their time freely, these valued team members have helped shape Meals on Wheels Central Coast, supporting the organisation through times of change and helping them move towards a positive future.

It’s an extremely special event then, when the honour of Life Membership is bestowed upon volunteers, this respectful title awarded to those who have gone above and beyond during their time of service.

Not one, but three Life Members have just joined the ranks of a minority before them, their names announced at the Meals on Wheels Central Coast AGM in November. Between them, Gail Ransley, Dorothy (Dot) Phillips and Margo Lowe have over 60 years of loyal service to Meals on Wheels Central Coast, acting in various volunteer roles over the years.

Involved with Meals on Wheels Central Coast for 24 years as a meal deliverer, Gail Ransley has also served on the Board for 17 years, holding various Executive roles during this time. Working in the community, Margo Lowe has spent 16 years delivering food to valued clients, her 14 years spent on the Board also involving a variety of Executive roles. A well know face around the Coast, Dot Phillips served as Treasurer on the Board for 11 years, also serving up meals at our Community Restaurants for around 20 years.

At a special presentation at the Meals on Wheels Central Coast head office at Tuggerah on Monday 18 December 2017, Board Chair Ron Thomsen and Chief Executive Officer Dennis Taylor presented these exceptional women with their Life Membership awards.

Meals on Wheels Central Coast are honoured that these wonderful Central Coast residents have devoted so much of their time over the years to not only their organisation, but to the local community.
