Featured Volunteer – June Bennett

“I am Tracey’s mom, granny to 8 grandchildren and great granny to 3 grandchildren. I have always been involved in education and love children. When Tracey started volunteering at Retreat MOU and shared the need for baby clothes etc. I put my talents to work and started making matinee jackets and knitting endless squares for blankets.”

These days I prepare 80 soups and meals for the moms at Retreat and Hanover Park every month. Delivering a baby and breastfeeding is hard work and it’s important to have a nutritional meal after giving birth. When you do something for someone else takes the focus off yourself and it highlight all the good that is in your own life.
