Meet Gaye Wade - Westfield Local Heroes 2021

A safe start for children

Roundabout Canberra
__Dedicated. Kind. Trusted __

Gaye Wade has helped thousands of children in need to get a safe start to life while reducing landfill through her organisation Roundabout Canberra.

Gaye spent a lifetime looking after children and families as a midwife and has volunteered with the non-profit since 2018 so she could help children in need during her retirement.

Roundabout Canberra is now a thriving enterprise that donates high-quality, pre-loved essentials that meet rigorous safety standards to vulnerable families.

Gaye is much admired for attending most volunteer sessions to sort through donations of clothing, linen and baby items such as prams, cots, nappies, toiletries and car seats.

Beautifully presented gift packs are then passed on to social service agencies to be distributed to families.

“We often receive notes of thanks,” she says.

If clothing and linen donated to the charity are unsuitable, they are given to organisations that repurpose them as cleaning rags.

Gaye is proud that Roundabout Canberra helped over 1300 children last year and saved 15 tonnes of fabric from landfill.

“It is a great honour to be nominated as a Westfield Local Hero, but I feel I only play a small part in a greater community effort to assist those less fortunate,” she says.

Westfield Local Heroes are nominated and voted for by their communities, with the three top finalists per Westfield centre each awarded a $10,000 grant for their affiliated organisation. Roundabout Canberra will use its funds to purchase safe cots, car seats and prams and baby essentials to donate to families.
