Gatton Star - - News -

WRIGHT MP Scott Buch­holz has re-opened nom­i­na­tions for the Wright Com­mu­nity Con­tri­bu­tion Awards af­ter com­mit­ments in Can­berra forced him to post­pone award pre­sen­ta­tions in 2015.

The awards, which started in 2014, are a way for the com­mu­nity to recog­nise and thank peo­ple who de­vote their time to help­ing oth­ers and mak­ing the Lock­yer Val­ley a bet­ter place to live. The awards recog­nise peo­ple like lo­cal woman Carol Marsh, who re­ceived the Spe­cial Recog­ni­tion Prize in 2014 for her work as chair­woman of Lai­d­ley Cri­sis Care and Ac­com­mo­da­tion. Mr Buch­holz said with­out the self­less­ness of vol­un­teers, many lo­cal com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions and ser­vices would cease to ex­ist.
