Max’s Story

Max is just one of the many special people who donate their time 

Max, a retired carpenter, is just one of the many special people who donate their time and skills to Guide Dogs Queensland as a part of our volunteer community.

After attending an event at Guide Dogs, he began to think about how he could use his skills to benefit the wider community.

Max has been using his carpentry skills to help keep the head office at Bald Hills in top shape ever since. 

“I’ve been retired for about six years now, and after coming to one of the open days with my wife I picked up some paperwork on volunteering and thought why not give it a go?” Max said.

 

Every week Max helps the Assets team keep on top of maintenance by trying his hand at a wide range of tasks.

“I do all the odd building jobs around the place like fixing gates, installing cupboards, or replacing light bulbs, and I enjoy that. Every day is different here.”
