The Tribune (NZ) - - NEWS - – Richard

Two sto­ries this week un­der­line the qual­ity of this com­mu­nity. The 288 nom­i­na­tions for the 2015 Trust­power Palmer­ston North Com­mu­nity Awards, and the 1500 names put for­ward for the 2015 Sport Manawatu Grass­roots Sports Awards.

In terms of com­mu­nity com­mit­ment, not just in Palmer­ston north, but across the wider Manawatu re­gion, this is huge. And these are just the peo­ple who were nom­i­nated for their self­less ser­vice.

There are many hun­dreds of oth­ers who turn up to do their bit for char­i­ties, trusts, or­gan­i­sa­tions and sports teams who don’t think they’re do­ing any­thing spe­cial.

What they are in­volved in and the work they do for oth­ers is sim­ply an ex­pres­sion of who they are – no ac­knowl­edge­ment nec­es­sary, re­ally. Ex­cept that it is. And good on Trust­power and Sport Manawatu for pro­vid­ing this level of recog­ni­tion.
