Example drives volunteers

GLORIA Kathleen Floyd has been remembered with the launch of a Great Community Transport car in her honour: Gloria's GO GO Mobile.

Mrs Floyd, who lived in Glenmore Park, died of cancer aged 62, in December.

Great Community Transport operates in the Penrith and Blue Mountains regions, driving elderly people or those too ill to transport themselves, to medical appointments, shopping or other engagements.

Mrs Floyd's family, friends and colleagues formally launched Gloria's GO GO, Great Community's 24th vehicle, in a bittersweet ceremony last Friday.

Fellow driver Sherlyn Wilson of South Penrith said it was a lovely way to remember her colleague.

"Gloria was so bubbly, very jovial and always happy," Mrs Wilson said.

"She wanted to do something for the community, like me — which is why I'm a volunteer.

"I like driving the different clients and hearing their beautiful life stories."

Mrs Floyd's daughter Fiona Place said it was a great way to honour her mother.

"It shows that Mum is still a part of Great Community Transport," Mrs Place said. Great Community Transport manager Helen Walker said they all missed their colleague.

"She loved to help people; taking them shopping or on outings," Mrs Walker said.
