Volunteer profile: Lindsay Cracknell

September 7, 2017


Lindsay has been volunteering at the Eye and Ear for over 12 months. He works on our concierge desk at the main site on Gisborne Street and sometimes in the Emergency Department. Lindsay first became interested in volunteering for the hospital after attending the Boroondara Volunteer Expo.

A retired dentist, Lindsay feels he has had a fortunate life and wants to give back to the community. He also volunteers for other organisations including the Royal Flying Doctor Service, where he travels to remote areas to perform dental procedures.

He thinks the Eye and Ear has a “good feel and vibe" and really enjoys the interaction with patients and staff. His hobbies include choirs, the wine industry, cooking and golf. Lindsay has also completed 13 marathons!
