YOUNG Aus­tralians of the Year and founders of Or­ange Sky Laun­dry launched a com­mu­nity award at Col­lier Pri­mary School this month.

Lu­cas Patch­ett and Nic March­esi, founders of Aus­tralia’s first mo­bile laun­dry ser­vice for the home­less, of­fi­cially launched the Aussie of the Month Awards for 2016 at the Como pri­mary school.

The phil­an­thropic pair spoke to stu­dents, teach­ers and par­ents at a spe­cial as­sem­bly about the im­por­tance of com­mu­nity ser­vice and pre­sented the first award for the year to stu­dents Zach Arnold and Matilda Pyne.

“We are ex­tremely proud of this pro­gram and the way it en­cour­ages com­mu­nity en­gage­ment from a young age,” Aus­tralia Day WA chief ex­ec­u­tive Mor­gen Lewis said.

“Nic and Lu­cas are fine ex­am­ples of young peo­ple con- trib­ut­ing to their com­mu­nity.

“Their story is an ex­tremely in­spir­ing one which young stu­dents can re­late to.”
