Lorraine humbled by award

LORRAINE Breust doesn't have much time for awards, even when they're heading her way.

The chairwoman of the Lower Clarence Relay For Life Committee has just been named the Cancer Council NSW star volunteer for October.

In her role, Ms Breust liaises with many stakeholders in preparation for the March 2015 event in Yamba. She also gives presentations on behalf of the Cancer Council to school groups and sporting organisations.

Receiving the award was a humbling experience for Ms Breust, who said she was grateful to everyone on the Lower Clarence Relay For Life Committee for their ongoing support and enthusiasm in planning the event.

"I am very humbled by this award," she said.

"I also want to say that this is not about me, it is about the great team of people that are working very hard to put together our very first Relay For Life event.

"Every day I marvel at the enthusiasm I see coming from everyone on the committee as they pull together, organise and promote our events in the lead-up to the 2015 relay."

Ms Breust has a long and distinguished history working with health organisations around the world.

In the 1990s, she was seconded to the World Health Organisation.

The Relay For Life will be held at Yamba Public School on March 14-15, 2015.
