Happy 100th, Chuck!

Chuck Younger

One of our volunteers celebrated a big milestone last month.

It was a birthday to remember for one of our longest serving volunteers recently, marked by a congratulatory message from The Queen.

Chuck Younger generously volunteered his time with us for nearly 17 years and on 7 January he celebrated his 100th birthday with friends and family at his home in Pinjarra Hills.

The former Spitfire pilot and great grandfather served in the Middle East and Burma, and was awarded several medals including the Distinguished Flying Cross.

Chuck unexpectedly joined the Leukaemia Foundation’s volunteer team in 1997 when he helped out a friend with a delivery to our offices. He was offered a cup of tea and, as they say, the rest is history.

We would like to thank Chuck for his many years of volunteering – and congratulate him on such a special birthday!
