Twenty years after she was diagnosed with breast cancer, Beryl Harris continues to volunteer her time to help others.
The South East Regional Hospital volunteer was awarded the 2019 volunteer of the year Quality Award in June, and this week added two more awards to her growing collection.
On Wednesday, October 30 she was presented with the Southern NSW Local Health District's Volunteer of the Year award and The Centre for Volunteering's NSW Volunteer of the Year in the South Coast/Southern Inland senior category.
"I appreciate what each and everyone has done for me as a volunteer," Ms Harris said.
"We are so blessed in this hospital, and Pambula Hospital, to have such dedicated volunteers. The two awards I've received aren't just for me, but everyone."
The hospital's director of nursing and midwifery, Nicole Tate, has known Ms Harris for twenty years, and said she has shown "dedication and commitment" to the hospital "almost every day of the week".
"She's had her own challenges as a long term cancer survivor, and she's still here volunteering. She puts everyone else's needs ahead of her own," Ms Tate said.
