Head out to your local Brisbane Northside shopping centre and there is doubt a chance you will run into Di heading up Be Uplifted Inc’s Raffle Table.
For many people in the community, our raffle tables are the first contact they have with Be Uplifted Inc, and our proud volunteers offer an invaluable connection and path to information about breast cancer and local support services to many people in the areas we visit.
With her wide welcoming smile, and sparkling eyes, Di is one of the effervescent and dedicated volunteers that work tirelessly fundraising for Be Uplifted Inc, and is often in the local community spreading our message.
An increasing number of breast cancer patients are seeking assistance from Be Uplifted Inc, which makes Di’s role in the community even more significant.
Be Uplifted Inc oversees a community information table in a local shopping centre every two weeks, an important tool in giving a face to our charity, as well as collecting donations plus fundraising through selling our breast cancer merchandise.
And it is Di who devotes hours to manning Be Uplifted Inc’s information tables at our local shopping centres, and she does it with absolute love and pride. Di happily meets with the local community and answers questions about breast cancer treatment, and about our support services.
Next time you see Di or the Be Uplifted Inc banner in your local Brisbane shopping centre, stop and have a chat!
