Member for Lismore Thomas George today called for nominations for the 2016 NSW Seniors Local Achievement Awards to recognise the huge contribution seniors make to the local community.

“The NSW Seniors Local Achievement Awards are an opportunity to thank a special senior for everything they do in the community.

“We are calling on people to nominate seniors who are making a real difference to the lives of those around them.”

Seniors are valued and respected members of our community.

“Whether it is volunteering for a charity, lending a helping hand to a local sporting club or caring for a loved one, older Australians do so much to make our families and communities stronger,” Mr George said.

The 2016 NSW Seniors Local Achievement Awards will celebrate seniors’ achievements in a range of categories, including business, environment, science, agriculture, health and wellbeing, learning and community service.

Nominations for the 2016 NSW Seniors Local Achievement Awards are open from Monday 22 February until Friday 18 March 2016. They will be presented as part of the 10-day long NSW Seniors Festival from 1-10 April 2016, formerly NSW Seniors Week.

NSW Seniors Festival celebrates and acknowledges the important role that seniors play in our community.

Nomination forms are available from my office by contacting 1800 336 166.
