Hall of Fame inductee recognised for voluntary bereavement support in Broken Hill

From Sandra Miller named top volunteer for 2017 by Broken Hill City Council.

Sandra Miller is an active volunteer with many services in Broken Hill. But she is perhaps best known as founder of the local Widows' Support Group, which she formed almost 10 years ago and continues to run to this day.

The Support Group provides comfort, friendship and assistance to recently bereaved widows, and offers critical support during their time of loss.

Mayor Darriea Turley said Sandra was a most worthy winner, who would sit comfortably alongside previous Hall Of Fame inductees.

"I think Sandra is the perfect selection to join the Hall Of Fame, you look at all the groups with which she's involved and it truly spans all ages of our community," said Mayor Turley.

"And I have to make special mention of her work founding the Widows' Support Group.

"To have built that support network from the ground up is a massive achievement, and I'm sure the group is cherished by each of its members for the assistance it offers during times of great sadness and heartbreak.

"On behalf of Council and Broken Hill, I congratulate Sandra on her induction."
