Nominations are open for the 2018 Citizen of the Year (over 26 years old), Young Citizen of the Year (16-25 years), Volunteer of the Year and Organisation of the Year Awards, for the City of Canterbury Bankstown.
Mayor Khal Asfour said Canterbury-Bankstown had many unsung heroes who often shy away from recognition.
"There are so many people who work tirelessly in our community and it’s so important we shine a spotlight on them," Mayor Asfour said.
"These people go out of their way to help others and many do not want anything in return. Their determination is inspiring."
2017 Canterbury-Bankstown Volunteer of the Year, Bob Beer, said he was surprised and pleased to be recognised.
"It’s a great feeling and achievement to be acknowledged for your efforts, even though recognition is not the reason you do what you do," Mr Beer said.
"It made it even better knowing that receiving the award raised even more awareness of the Recreation Sports and Aquatics Club (RSAC) – and that’s always the aim."
Mr Beer was recognised for his outstanding service to the RSAC, an organisation that supports the lifestyle choices of people living with disability. As Club President, Mr Beer is busy developing and delivering programs, planning fundraisers and activities, and promoting the RSAC to sponsors and other businesses.
"I’d encourage everyone to nominate someone who inspires you, for an Australia Day Award. Hard work always deserves a pat on the back."
