Two Far West Local Health District representatives will be winging their way to Sydney to attend the 2017 NSW Volunteer of the Year Awards with Rex Airlines sponsoring their flights.
Far West LHD will be represented at the Awards by finalists Mr Timothy O’Neil – Regional winner Adult Volunteer of the Year and Mary Leehane NSW Volunteer of the Year Award for Excellence in Volunteer Management.
Rex Airlines has generously sponsored two return flights in recognition of the contribution of our volunteer services to Far West Local Health District and the communities it serves.
Paul Robinson, Travel Manager of Far West LHD said: “It is an accomplishment to have two finalists in the State Volunteer of the Year Award and equally that such a prominent organisation like Rex Airlines are again supporting our organisation in recognising their outstanding contribution to the health service and community”.
Both Tim and Mary realise that they are competing against very strong competition from across NSW and although they would love to bring a State win back to Broken Hill, as was the case in 2015, they are extremely pleased and honoured to go to Sydney to represent Far West LHD and their community.
The 2017 NSW Volunteer of the Year Awards ceremony will be held in Sydney on Friday, 8 December 2017.
