Our very own local hero

Our very own Pauline McIntyre was celebrated last week at Westfield Carousel as one of the 2022 finalists of their Local Heroes program.

As a deserving finalist who has made an incredible contribution to her community, she won $5,000 for Vinnies support services in WA. Thank you to Pauline and all of the Westfield Local Heroes, for helping make a difference in WA.

Pauline has volunteered for Vinnies for more than 25 years as both a member and an Archivist.

As a member, her contribution includes listening to the families who call for assistance, delivering food and clothing vouchers, organising help with urgent furniture deliveries, utility bills and car rego.

More recently, calls for help from victims of family violence and homelessness have been on the rise and she helps find accommodation and arranges referrals to free qualified financial counsellors, who can help sort out more complicated money matters.
