Nominations wanted for community awards

Is there a voluntary group or organisation that has made a real difference in the community? Should they get some much-deserved recognition?

If the answer is yes, nominate them for the Infratil-Waitakere Community Awards.

Infratil, in conjunction with the Waitakere City Council, wants to recognise and celebrate the outstanding contribution volunteers make to the community.

The volunteers of many groups and organisations working tirelessly for their community can get the recognition they deserve by a nomination in the Infratil-Waitakere Community Awards.

The Infratil-Waitakere Community Awards are not grants. They recognise hard working voluntary groups in the community – from sports clubs to school PTA’s to not-for-profit health organisations.

As well as local and national recognition, the winning groups receive financial reward. This year, Infratil and the Waitakere City Council have more than $5,000 to inject into outstanding voluntary groups in Waitakere.

It’s easy to nominate a group or organisation for the Infratil-Waitakere Community Awards. Simply fill out the nomination form online at www.waitakere.govt.nz and post or fax it to the Waitakere City Council. You can even nominate your own group!

For more information on the Infratil-Waitakere Community Awards call the Waitakere City Council on 839 0400 or log onto www.waitakere.govt.nz.
