And on Australia Day, Margaret was honoured for her work, receiving A Lilley Australia Day Award.
A well-deserved honour
Margaret Toovey is being recognised for her hard work with at Be Uplifted Inc.
Not only is Margie a breast cancer survivor herself, she works to an extremely high standard to ensure that recipients of care services from Be Uplifted Inc are treated with care, concern and understanding.
Her genuine empathy and enthusiasm are seen in everything she does for Be Uplifted Inc – in her role on the wrapping team, when she is working hard on the BBQ team fundraising for our breast cancer charity, and when she is out in the community with breast cancer patients as part of the recipient team.
Margie has been Be Uplifted Inc’s Treasurer for over four years now, and she gives a full work week of about 50 hours to our non-profit organisation every week, plus is on call 24 hours a day to help distressed breast cancer patients.
Her true selfishness and dedication to helping others during their breast cancer journey are inspiring, and her genuine joy and enthusiasm for life are motivating for all of those who work around her.
A well-deserved honour for a hardworking member of the Be Uplifted Inc team. Well done, Margie!
