Put forward women for annual award
CHIFLEY federal Labor MP Ed Husic is calling for nominations for the 2016 Coral McLean Awards.
The annual honour is presented in memory of Coral McLean, known affectionately to many as the Mother of Mt Druitt.
She helped establish the Mt Druitt and Area Community Legal Centre and, as a founder of the Mt Druitt Reconciliation Group, spearheaded the annual Reconciliation Walk.
Mr Husic said the awards would be presented in conjunction with International Women’s Day to recognise the outstanding achievements of other Chifley women.
“These awards play an important role in recognising local Chifley women who are achieving great things for our area.
“Coral really set the bar, but every year it is deeply heartening to see that same drive live on in so many others who dedicate an incredible amount of their time to delivering real improvements in our community.”
Nominations close at 5pm on March 4.
