We were deeply saddened to learn this week that Salvo collector Shirley Mort passed away aged 92.

For 26 years, Shirley stood at the Perth train station footbridge where she collected more than $1.7 million to support Aussies who are doing it tough.

She also played an invaluable role in our soup kitchen - getting up at 5am to prepare meals for those who would otherwise go without.

"That was how I was treated - not as the person who did all that stuff in the past. I was a person who gets to be whatever I want to be ... whatever God wanted me to be, which isn't that broken person."
