Many deserving of an Australia Day award

THERE are only a few days remaining to nominate someone who has made a real difference in your life or the life of others for the Canterbury Bankstown Australia Day Honours 2022.

Mayor Khal Asfour said it’s hard to believe it is that time of the year again when residents are asked to nominate someone they believe has made a real difference in the community.
“And never has it been more important than following this most difficult year,” he said.
“There are many selfless local heroes who don’t seek recognition or fame, but deserve our gratitude and thanks in our Australia Day honours list.
“People from all walks of life who do what they do out of a commitment to the community and love for others, from carers of the elderly and the disabled, volunteers, community leaders, to mentors and role models.”
The award categories include Citizen of the Year; Young Citizen of the Year; Volunteer of the Year; Community Organisation of the Year; and Jack Mundey Environment and Heritage Award.
“I look forward to the joy of reviewing the stories of these unsung heroes and indeed of the day itself,” the mayor said.
The winners of the awards will be announced at the Australia Day Ceremony when a group of residents will also proudly become Australian Citizens.
