I was invited to the Kiama Electorate Community Recognition Awards recently and was presented with a Highly Commended for Outstanding Illawarra Citizen. A great honour to be amongst a group of local people who give so much back to the community.
These recognitions really are for my wife Andy, our Board and the whole team who keep the charity running. The award was presented by The Honourable John Ajaka MLC, Minister for Volunteering, Gareth Ward MP, Member for Kiama, and Brian Petchler, Mayor of Kiama. I am also grateful to a generous member of the community who nominated me.
