Nationals Member for Lismore, Thomas George MP, today called for nominations for the 2017 NSW Seniors Local Achievement Awards.

“Seniors help make our local community stronger and better,” Mr George said.

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

“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 2017 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 2017 NSW Seniors Local Achievement Awards are open from Monday 20 February – Tuesday 28 February. They will be presented as part of NSW Seniors Festival, held 3 – 12 March.
