From the parent who helps out at the local surf club, to the resident who is paying it forward, and the young person who is making a difference; the call has officially gone out to find the unsung heroes of the southern Gold Coast.
Nominations are now open for the 2020 McPherson Community Awards, which celebrate the outstanding contributions residents make to our local community.
Federal Member for McPherson, Karen Andrews MP, said each and every year she is humbled to learn of the extraordinary efforts of those living in McPherson.
“I have been presenting these awards for many years now, and am always excited to meet the nominees and hear their amazing stories,” Mrs Andrews said.
“Around 100 nominations were received for the 2019 McPherson Community Awards,” she said. “That goes to show just how many members of our community offer invaluable support to local organisations and clubs.”
There are three categories open for nomination:
• McPherson Community Achiever
• Young Community Achiever (under 25 years of age)
• Surf Lifesaving Community Achiever
“If you know someone who lives on the southern Gold Coast and is deserving of this recognition I encourage you to nominate them today,” Mrs Andrews said.
“I am proud to represent the unsung heroes of McPherson in our nation’s Parliament.”
Nomination forms are available by contacting the office of Karen Andrews MP: on 5580 9111 or at www.karenandrewsmp.com.au
Nominees must live in the McPherson electorate.
Nominations close on the 14th February 2020 with award recipients to be recognised at a special morning tea hosted by Minister Andrews.
