Wests Group is a proud finalist in the Clubs & Community Awards 2022

Posted at 29 Mar 2022

NSW clubs have once again demonstrated their integral role in their communities, submitting incredible stories of generosity in the prestigious Clubs & Community Awards, with 98 worthy finalists and Wests Group Macarthur is thrilled to be one of them!

 

The awards recognise the outstanding social contributions made by clubs in their local areas and across the state in the following nine categories: Arts & Culture, Clubs in Collaboration, Education, Emergency Services, Fostering Grassroots Sport, Mental & Social Wellbeing, Health Care, Heart of the Community (Club Award) and Club Person of the Year (Individual Award).

 

Wests Group is a finalist in both the Fostering Grassroots Sport and Heart of the Community categories for our commitment to Rugby League via our Macarthur Rugby League and our For Macarthur community strategy that helps to deliver significant community engagement work and investment in the Macarthur region.

 

ClubsNSW CEO Josh Landis said the way clubs have looked after their members and communities throughout what has been a very challenging 12-month period is nothing short of inspirational. “Despite a lengthy shutdown period, months of COVID restrictions, and ongoing staff shortages, clubs haven’t missed a beat when it comes to looking after those who need them most,” said Mr Landis.

 

“From acting as COVID vaccination hubs and cooking meals for those less fortunate to hosting virtual entertainment for members during lockdown and raising money for mental health services, clubs have worked tirelessly over the past year and this is their chance to be recognised.

 

The winners will be announced at a special awards evening on the 26th May. Wish us luck!
