Community Champions Honoured This Queensland Day

If you know someone who makes a positive difference to the Murrumba community, Chris Whiting MP wants to know.


“Across the entire Murrumba Electorate, it is the people who make a great difference - Our Community Champions,” Mr Whiting said.


“I have presented a Volunteer Award annually for some of our fantastic volunteers in the lead-up to Christmas,


“This year however I wanted to do something a bit different, and honour anyone who makes a difference in our community. 


“What better day to acknowledge the hard work of local Queenslanders than on Queensland Day, the day that the great state of Queensland become self-governing in 1859.” Mr Whiting said.


It could be someone who works in one of our many fantastic community groups, or on a school P&C. A business who gives back to the community, or someone putting in the effort at a local sporting group. 


“The Moreton Bay Region is a great place to live. We are surrounded by natural beauty, bustling business centres and growing communities,” Chris Whiting said.


“There’s an endless list of great qualities, and great people we can acknowledge,” Mr Whiting said.


The awards are open to anyone who you feel makes a positive difference in the Murrumba community.


Nominations close at 5pm on 26 May 2017. Recipients, and those who have nominated them, will be invited to a special awards function on Queensland Day. 


Murrumba is comprised of the suburbs of Griffin, Mango Hill, Rothwell, North Lakes, Deception Bay and Burpengary East. It also takes in parts of Kippa-Ring, Narangba and Morayfield.
