2010 CARERS AWARD FOR DELYS CUMMING

2010 CARERS AWARD FOR DELYS CUMMING

19 October 2010

Last week Nationals Member for Lismore Thomas George had the pleasure of presenting Delys Cumming with a NSW Carers Award 2010.

The Awards, which have been announced as part of 2010 National Carers Week running from 17 23 October, aim to recognise individuals and organisations who have made a significant contribution to improving the lives of the people for whom they care and to our community as a whole.

Delys, of Chilcots Grass, received her award in recognition of her caring for her elderly parents for the past 15 years.

"This award celebrates the wonderful work Delys does in caring for her parents," said Mr George.

"Carers really do make a difference to the lives of many in our community and it is great to see the valuable work they carry out recognised."

Jennie Richter, of Kyogle, also received a NSW Carers Award 2010 in acknowledgement of caring for her son, supporting him through sickness to recovery.
