Every day there is someone who quietly goes about their business, dedicating their time and effort to helping others, with little or no thanks.

But Fowler MP, Chris Hayes, wants to acknowledge these people and is encouraging nominations for community service awards.

“We all know someone who goes above and beyond to make a positive difference in our community and they deserve to be recognised.”

“We have so many unsung heroes in our local community, the quiet achievers who help others without asking for anything in return,” Chris Hayes said.

Mr Jimmy Mtashar with Chris Hayes, Federal Member for Fowler.

Nominations close on Tuesday 7 November 2017, with awards being presented in late November 2017.

Nominations forms can be obtained by contacting Chris’ office on telephone 9726 3988 or via email chris.hayes.mp@aph.gov.au

Previous award recipients include Mrs Mehar Ahmad and Mr Jimmy Mtashar.
