Keith’s Annual Donation

Keith’s Annual Donation

Keith and Luke

Keith Marshall called into the office to drop off his annual donation to UMFC. Keith is a living legend at the Wodonga pool, where he swims each day, as he has for the past 40 years or so, completing his laps in a steady pace at the ripe old age of 93.

I got to know Keith when the pool was across the road from our Stanley St office. As a beginning swimmer Keith encouraged me to stick with it.

Over the years we often discussed social issues concerning families. One day he came in with a significant donation and has continued ever since. Although he is a man of modest means ( pensioner ) and lifestyle, he still makes a generous gift because of his concern for others. I know Keith’s life has had its own challenges but that doesn’t stop him worrying about other people.

Great communities consist of many people like Keith, humble, unassuming and quietly contributing in their own way. I find it energizing and uplifting to know local people like Keith support our work.
