Ms. Anita Maiagmiot於ICA服務超過十年，期間風雨不改於早餐時段服務無家者及弱勢社群。服務社區上弱勢及不同族群群體從來不易，加上Anita來自菲律賓，她更須克服傳統、文化及語言的挑戰；但Anita從不畏難，樂於以正面樂觀的心態提供服務。
We are delighted to announce that Ms. Anita Maraguinot, the volunteer nominated by Islington Chinese Association (ICA), has won the award of Older Volunteer of the Year 2021. This award was presented by Voluntary Action Islington to celebrate the achievements of people volunteering in Islington.
Ms. Anita Maraguinot has always been and still is a dedicated and hands-on volunteer helping the seven-day breakfast service from 8.30am (snow, rain or shine), for the homeless and deprived continuously served for more than ten years. Although being Filipino, Anita is always ready to serve the diverse community in Islington irrespective of their racial backgrounds, gender or age. Serving the less privileged section of the community is never easy or straight forward especially when tradition, heritage and culture are dissimilar but Anita never shies away from any tasks, instead, always fulfils it with a positive attitude and smile which provides that role model and motivation for other volunteers.
Our staff, users and other volunteers are constantly encouraged by her outgoing personality and dedication. We are proud to have a selfless, inspirational and committed volunteer as Anita, her contribution and commitment should be properly acknowledged and celebrated.
