"The two Bevs" – Beverley Haack and Beverly Montgomery – are familiar faces around the Carinity Fairfield Grange community.

Now the Carinity volunteers have been officially recognised for their efforts, having been shortlisted for Townsville City Council Seniors Awards.

Beverley Haack volunteers to play piano at Carinity Fairfield Grange.  Every week the residents have smiles on there faces when Beverley turns up to Fairfield Grange – and they can’t wait for her to start playing. It brings them a lot of joy.

To provide this service, Beverley practices three times a week and uses her own fuel to travel to and from home, which is difficult for a pensioner and she always turns up with a smile on her face.

The residents always look forward to Beverly Montgomery running chair exercise classes for them, to help them to keep healthy and active.

“An important part of providing a pleasant living environment is offering residents activities, and without our volunteers like the twos Bev our options become more limited.  All our residents and staff value their enthusiasm, kindness and generosity,” Carinity CEO Jon Campbell says.

The Townsville City Council Seniors Awards will be held at Townsville Stadium on August 23 as part of Queensland Seniors Week celebrations.
