2020 Westfield Local Heroes Program

Wednesday, 10 February 2021

Speaker, I rise to congratulate the recipients of the 2020 Westfield Hurstville Local Heroes Program.

Liz Diab from The Crateful Group, Sue-Ellan Vasiliou from Little Legs Foundation and Najwa Sawan from Aspect South East Sydney School will be awarded a $10,000 grant each for the affiliated organisations to continue their work.

The Crateful Group, based in Beverly Hills, is a volunteer-run food rescue organisation that has provided nutritious food to those in need during the pandemic.

Little Legs Foundation work tirelessly to raise awareness and support in the fight to find a cure for brain cancer- a disease hurting too many of our little friends and their families.

Finally, Aspect South East Sydney School is Australia’s largest service provider for people on the autism spectrum. They share evidence-informed autism practice and applied research nationwide.

I would like to congratulate all three associations, as well as Peter Allen, CEO of the Westfield Local Heroes Program, on the resounding success of this year’s program.

Now in its third year, the Westfield Local Heroes program has recognised 363 local heroes and organisations, and provided $3.62 million in community grants.
