Put for­ward women for an­nual award

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

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.

De­tails: 9625 4344.
