State Member for Wallsend, Ms Sonia Hornery MP, has today called for nominations for the 2019 Seniors Local Achievement Awards.

The Awards are an opportunity for the Wallsend electorate to recognise the diversity of talent, generosity of spirit and limitless energy of local seniors.

“I am sure everyone in the Wallsend electorate knows an older person who deserves to be recognised and the NSW Seniors Local Achievement Awards are an opportunity to thank a senior for everything they do in the community.”

“Whether it is volunteering for a charity, lending a helping hand to a local sporting club or caring for a loved one, older Australians do so much to make our families and communities stronger.”

“I am calling on people to nominate seniors who are making a real difference to the lives of those around them.”

“The awards are a wonderful way to showcase the talents and contributions of seniors living in our community.”

“Nominations are now open and will close on Friday, 8 February.”

“Nomination forms can be downloaded from my website or by calling or visiting my office.” Stated Ms Sonia Hornery MP.

Seniors make a real difference in our local communities and provide a lot of support in many areas.  They have a wealth of knowledge and experience to offer, and they continue to make significant contributions to communities across NSW.

Nominations for the 2019 NSW Seniors Local Achievement Awards are now open and will close on Friday, 8 February 2019.
