Fight Cancer Foundation Volunteer of the Year 2016
Congratulations to Alf Armstrong, who has been named 2016 Fight Cancer Foundation Volunteer of the Year!
Alf has been a dedicated and passionate volunteer with Fight Cancer Foundation since Fight Cancer Foundation's Albury Wodonga accommodation centre was first mooted. In 2003, Alf, who is a staunch member of Rotary Club North Albury, joined the Albury Wodonga Accommodation Centre Steering Committee. As a lead member of the Steering Committee, Alf oversaw a number of major fundraising and development projects for Fight Cancer Foundation’s Albury Wodonga accommodation centre, Hilltop.
In 2014 Alf initiated the Hilltop ‘Thank You Tour’, visiting local service clubs and community groups who were involved with fundraising for Hilltop, voicing the appreciation of the Board of Management and Fight Cancer Foundation. His high level of engagement with Albury and surrounding communities as a representative of Fight Cancer Foundation is invaluable and greatly appreciated by the Fight Cancer Foundation Board of Directors.
Now a member of Hilltop Board of Management, Alf works tirelessly to ensure Hilltop continues to offer accommodation of the highest possible standard for people living with cancer and their families.
Alf’s enthusiasm and dedication as a supporter of Fight Cancer Foundation, together with his ability to see potential in various widespread projects have been immensely significant in helping make Hilltop the success story it is today.
