Mask(ed) Warrior – Lockdown Local Hero
Challenges are inevitable, however City of Kalamunda resident, Debbie Don, is not known for letting them beat her.
When COVID-19 lockdowns were brought in earlier this year Debbie rose to the challenge, making hundreds of fabric face masks, giving them away for free to anyone who needed one. This was despite recovering from recent surgery herself.
One very appreciative recipient nominated Debbie for a City of Kalamunda Local Hero Award which was presented to her this week, together with a KalaCash gift card as a token of the City’s appreciation.
Mayor Margaret Thomas JP said, “Debbie’s generous spirit and giving nature were obviously needed at this time. The resilience she shows in the face of adversity is a lesson for us all and is to be commended.”
