Almost 90 registered clubs from across NSW have been named as finalists in the industry’s prestigious Clubs & Community Awards. We’re pleased to announce that we are one of them!
The Awards recognise the outstanding social contributions made by clubs in their local area and throughout the state.
The finalists are split into nine Awards categories: Arts & Culture, Clubs in Collaboration, Disability, Welfare & Social Inclusion, Education, Emergency Services, Health & Wellbeing, Heart of the Community, Support of Amateur Sport, and Youth Leadership.
We have been recognised in not one, but two categories:
Disability, Welfare & Social Inclusion
For our work with the Macarthur Women’s Domestic Violence Court Advocacy Service in providing Safe T Cards to women in High-risk Domestic Violence situations.
For our work with local schools in delivering the Learning Links Reading For Life Program.
ClubsNSW CEO Anthony Ball said that Awards organisers faced a tough judging process, with a large number of high calibre entries received.
“Whether it’s supporting junior sport, contributing to charitable organisations or finding innovative solutions to areas of need, clubs across NSW make an enormous social contribution to the areas in which they serve,” said Mr Ball.
“The Clubs & Community Awards are all about recognising that spirit which underpins the ethos of the entire club industry.”
From staff volunteering to feed the homeless, to clubs housing emergency service personnel during times of natural disaster, the spirit of NSW clubs has shone through in this year’s list of finalists.
Clubs from as far north as Coffs Harbour, down to Merimbula in the south and out to Dubbo in the west, have been named in the list of finalists.
A record number of entries were received for this year’s Awards, with winners to be announced at the Clubs & Community Awards gala dinner to be held at the International Convention Centre, Sydney, on 13 October.
