Women who make our communities a better place to live.

There are countless  women who dedicate their time to crucial community groups and charities such as emergency services, the arts, environment, social justice, education sport organisations,and so many others within rural and regional communities.

The Hidden Treasures Honour Roll was developed to improve recognition of the important role women volunteers play within NSW rural communities and acknowledge them.

In 2014 Gay Daley was inducted into the Hidden Treasures Honour Roll for her outstanding service to the community.  Gay was born and grew up in Parkes where she completed her schooling. She has raised two children, is a grandmother to five and a great-grandmother to two.  Gay worked for 26 years with the Parkes Home Care Branch and after her retirement became an outstanding volunteer at the Parkes Neighbourhood Centre as a volunteer receptionist.  This is an important role that meets, greets and offers advice and support to all who visit the Centre.  Gay has also volunteered for Meals on Wheels, the local Community Visitors Scheme and the local Community Transport Scheme. Gay has always been generous with her time and is always available to assist and support members of her large family as required. She has been active throughout the community, helping those in need whether they are a friend, colleague or neighbour. Gay is reliable and has a happy, caring and generous spirit. She has excellent craft skills and regularly knits for local charities so items can be sent overseas to help children in need.
