(From left, Mayor Michael Coxon with Mary Mangos.)
For more than 70 years Mary has been raising funds to support the Greek and wider communities and providing not only her time to worthy causes, but opening up her home and its garden as a fundraising venue for afternoon teas, fashion parades and other charitable events.
She has served on the Board of the Greek Women’s Society of SA (founded by her mother more than 80 years ago) and for many years was considered as the ‘quiet achiever’ and support for her late mother.
Her work has benefited hundreds of Greek migrants and their families.
