I am delighted to share the names of our local recipients of Westfield Local Heroes, a new community recognition program which aims to connect and enrich the local communities in which we operate.
The program was created to discover and celebrate individuals who promote social wellbeing and harmony in our community through their work across one or more of the three social values of family, youth opportunity and inclusion.
Westfield Local Heroes are nominated and voted for by their community, with three finalists per Westfield living centre each awarded a $10,000 grant to support their affiliated organisation’s work, programs or activities.
Our 2018 Westfield Warringah Mall Local Heroes are:
- Daniel Peterson, Community Northern Beaches
- Warren Welsh, The Burdekin Association
- Mitchell Wallis, Heart on My Sleeve Movement
You can read more about them here:
I offer my congratulations to these three remarkable local heroes.
If you know a local hero who deserves recognition for their contribution to our community, please contact my office and we will pass the details on for the 2019 program.
