A well deserved retirement

Return to news & stories Return to news & stories

Carolyn Davis has been a popular and exceptionally hard-working part of the team at what is now the Challenge recycling centre on the outskirts of Narrabri, but that came to an end recently.

Miss Davis retired after 38 years at the centre, starting as a 15-year-old at what was the Namoi Enterprises sheltered workshop in 1979, and continuing on when Challenge took over the centre about 15 years ago.

And she certainly created an impression.

"She always gives a 100 per cent effort in everything she does," said Challenge Community Services chief executive Barry Murphy, who travelled from Tamworth for a special retirement function attended by family and co-workers on Thursday, November 16.

"Thirty eight years, that's a pretty amazing career."

That was echoed by recycling plant manager Tony Clare.

"She's always done a good job and worked to her best capability here," he said.

"We'll be sad to see her go."

About Challenge Community Services

Over 60 years ago we were a small band of parents and friends seeking support services for our children with disability. Today, Challenge has grown to be one of the largest community support services in New South Wales. We provide support to over 2500 people from Albury to Lismore, Sydney, Dubbo, Tamworth and beyond. With over 880 staff, 95 of which have a disability, we strive to comply with and exceed all standards required under State and Federal Acts.
In the spirit of Reconciliation, Challenge Community Services acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the Traditional Owners and Custodians of this country, and their connection to land, water and community. We pay our respect to them, their cultures and customs, and to Elders both past and present.
