Warrnambool Daybreak Rotary Club award recipient Margaret Morton does not believe in sitting around.

The 90-year-old has dedicated her life to helping others and was recently recognised with the Peter Johns’ Community Service Award, named in memory of the respected past member.

Mrs Morton began volunteering because she enjoys helping people. “You don’t think about what you do, you just do it,” Mrs Morton said. 

Over the years Mrs Morton has been a meals on wheels volunteer, served at the Warrnambool RSPCA and has done considerable work with the Warrnambool RSL where she was on the sub-branch committee for nine years and awarded life membership. The active volunteer conducts home and hospital visits, helps members with their shopping and appointments and sells ANZAC merchandise and RSL raffle tickets, raising $30,000 annually.

Committee member Cheryl Bellman congratulated Mrs Morton and said she was a very worthy recipient and an amazing lady.
