Diana Roberts, of Colebrook, is known for the positive contribution she has made to her community.
Simply running a farm, family and working would occupy most people’s time, but Diana has achieved much more.
Diana has been a volunteer for many years. She was an active member of the Campania School Parents and Friends Association for nine years, volunteering in the uniform shop and on the fair committee. She was also treasurer of the Colebrook Online Access Centre (until its closure). Diana is currently a member of the Colebrook/Campania Red Cross and the Colebrook Progress Association, a volunteer at the Colebrook History Room and helps organise the annual Cuppa for Cancer.
After a Colebrook family’s business, and only source of income, was devastated by fire, Diana as treasurer of the Progress Association, helped organise a fundraising dinner dance with proceeds going to the family.
Diana’s voluntary roles extend beyond the Colebrook and Campania area. Diana fundraises for the Midlands Multi-Purpose Health Centre Auxiliary by crocheting knee rugs for raffles. Diana is also a prolific baker and cooks produce to sell at the Colebrook Market and to fundraise for Girl Guides and CWA.
When the Sorell Girl Guides had no leaders, Diana took responsibility for leading the group, retraining and taking camps, weekly meetings and lessons to teach practical skills and independence. As a Guide leader, Diana is proactive and organised for the Guides to participate in Clean Up Australia Day, Anzac Day Marches, and to assist the RSL with Anzac Day catering. Diana has been a Girl Guide leader from 1988-1996 and since 2014. Diana helped organise the State Guide Camp at Wayatinah in 2017.
Diana positively impacts on individual lives and the community and region where she lives.
