Gift to homeless showered with praise
C.EX Group’s commitment to the community was evident when it was nominated for two ClubsNSW’s Club and Community Awards recently.
The awards included the Emergency Services category for its crucial partnership with the Northern Region Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter Service, and the Disability, Welfare & Social Inclusion category for its Community Crew Sleep Out during which 45 people braved the winter rain in support of reducing homelessness on the Coffs Coast.
The event, now in its second year, raised almost $26,000 for local refuges and has educated the community on the issue of homelessness.
“Clubs are always the first to roll up their sleeves or lend a helping hand, and these awards are all about recognising that community spirit,” ClubsNSW CEO Anthony Ball said.
Macksville Ex-Services Club has been recognised for its efforts in the disability sector through ongoing work with
local disability service provider CHESS Employment.
Winners will be announced at a gala ceremony on Friday, May 6 in Sydney.
