We had a very special guest become our Social Media Manager for a morning. Daphne, a 94-year-old volunteer, swapped the spatula for a keyboard on International Day of the Older Person. She had a quick crash course in how to use Facebook, and then jumped right into it, making posts and answering questions.
She answered questions about what it was like to volunteer and the secret to healthy ageing. Daphne was happy with how the day went, “Its been an experience for me I’ve never done before”. She said that she enjoyed the day and that she hopes “…we get some more volunteers and perhaps new customers too”.

The day was successful not only for Daphne, but also for Meals on Wheels. We made the front page of the Advertiser and were picked up by SBS on social media, where the post got over 220,000 views in just 24 hours!
