VMR volunteer in the running
WHITSUNDAY Island Marine Rescue volunteer Mal Priday has been announced as a finalist for the 2018 QBANK Everyday Heroes Awards in the Achievement category.
Mr Priday has been with VMR Whitsundays for more than 15 years and said when he first received the email, he thought it was spam.
"It was entirely unexpected. It's just doing something for the community and using the training and experience that I've got,” Mr Priday said.
"I'm quite humbled by the recognition.”
The 2018 QBANK Everday Heroes award winners will be announced on September 21.
