The award is open to people who volunteer their time on a continuing basis for the benefit of the community as well as people who mentor, perform acts of compassion, generosity or bravery.
‘‘The welfare and success of our community is underpinned by the work and effort of so many residents who devote themselves to assisting others,’’ Cr Saliba said.
