Sadly, due to recent COVID developments and regulations, we are cancelling this year’s 3rd September ANZ Mobile Lending Volunteer “Service & Beyond” Awards gala dinner at the Country Club St Georges Basin.

This is the second consecutive year the gala dinner has been cancelled due to COVID, however at this time, we are still planning to:

  • continue and extend the Volunteer Awards nominations timeframe until Wednesday 15th September with Category Award Finalists, Nominators, and Sponsors being invited to the Speaker’s Garden Volunteers Recognition Reception at Parliament House, Sydney on 20th October 2021
  • have the Kia Picanto S Auto Hatch Car Winner decider draw at South nowra Auto Group on 3rd September attended by the 28 raffle ticket car key winners and/or nominated representatives and sponsors. Currently, we have 13 more Car Key Winners to be drawn. $5 raffle tickets can still be purchased online on our Fundraising Page
  • continue the Schools “Capes for Community” Awards with nominations closing on 25th October, and the finalists being invited to attend the Presentation Celebration at ShoalPOP Pop Culture Charity Expo on 20th November 2021 at Berry Cool Nursery
  • discussions are also underway for a tv and radio campaign to seek nominations/referral of Shoalhaven families with chronically ill kids requiring benevolent assistance to stay at the Superheroes Community Care River Retreat at Shoalhaven Heads. The accommodation stays would be sponsored by Superheroes Community Care

To help promote awareness of the above changes, we are organising both WIN TV advertising and PowerFM/2ST radio campaigns.
