CLUB Taree has been recogonised for its commitment and support to the Manning Valley Food Services Inc. (Meals on Wheels) by being announced as finalists in the Clubs and Community Awards for 2014.
Club Taree is one of four clubs across the Far and Mid North Coast of NSW that has been nominated for this annual event. For the first time, the Awards will recognise winners across nine categories that have been designed to reflect the different ways clubs contribute to a better society.
The categories include outstanding contributions in the areas of Youth, Emergency Services, Health, Sport, Welfare and Social inclusion, Environment, Heart of the Community, Education, as well as an Outstanding Regional Initiative award which recognises clubs working together to help the wider community.
ClubsNSW CEO Anthony Ball said that he was blown away by the amount of stories that were received and was proud to hear the outstanding contribution clubs make in the local community.
“The Clubs and Community Awards are an opportunity for local clubs to showcase the fantastic
contribution they make within their local community,” he said.
“It’s also an opportunity to inspire others to go that extra distance within their community.
“This year, we received hundreds of amazing stories, all of which showed the unwavering commitment registered clubs have for their community.”
