Lucy Donaldson,
Lord Somers Camp and Powerhouse

Lauded as dynamic, driven and kind, Lucy was nominated in 2019 for her strategic leadership role at Lord Somers Camp and Powerhouse over almost 20 years. As the Executive Officer on the week-long Big Camp programs, she oversaw the timetable, communications, venues and meal service for more than 330 people, six times a day.

A natural mentor and coach, Lucy contributed to essential leadership roles – from running camps for newly arrived Syrian, Afghan and Sudanese teenagers to those designed to develop the skills of future volunteer leaders. Her boundless humour, optimism and creativity in bringing people together to continuously enrich the Victorian community contributed to her recognition as an outstanding leader in the volunteering sector.
