As far community service goes, Peter 'Cork' Walsh is one of the most generous in Warrnambool.
But he won't let you tell him so.
Mr Walsh was humbled to received a Certificate of Appreciation from Parkinson's Victoria after spending more than 20 years supporting the local groups.
"I was surprised and overwhelmed to receive the certificate," he said.
"I didn't realise Parkinson's had awards like this.
"I don't believe I do that much, but I guess every little bit helps."
Warrnambool Parkinson's Peer Support Group coordinator Andrew Suggett said Mr Walsh goes above and beyond in helping the group and nominated him for the award.
"Cork is so generous with his time and support for our group," Mr Suggett said.
"He's always there to help us, support us in our raffles and supply the morning tea.
"I think he was thrilled to bits when I handed him the certificate."
Mr Walsh said he allows community groups to use a room at his eatery Macey's Bistro free of charge and gives them an urn and food for morning or afternoon meetings. He also organisers 'Parky Songs' for members of the Parkinson's groups to listen to music.
The Parkinson's groups are one of many community organisations Mr Walsh has supported throughout his 45 years in hospitality.
"I've lived in Warrnambool all my life and I know most of the people in the groups," Mr Walsh said.
"There's a long list of groups who come here for meetings.
"It's been good to give a little bit back to the community."
