If you've been to one of our Evergreen Club luncheons, chances are you would've met Orna. She's part of the group the kitchen volunteers who make the magic in the kitchen happen each week.

Orna has been volunteering here for about five years after she overheard someone recommending Balwyn Evergreen.

“So I visited and spoke to the manager and was very impressed.”

A self-described “people person”, Orna enjoys the friendly and welcoming atmosphere and, particularly, getting to know the community.

“Meeting new people is great for my wellbeing and everyone else’s. I love meeting other volunteers as well,” she says.

“We should all volunteer and make our lives richer. It's about giving back to the community."
