Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith presented Community Service Awards to Mr James (Jim) Devine and Mr Christopher (Chris) Hall in recognition and appreciation of their contribution to the Penrith community.

“Jim is a hardworking volunteer with the Lions Club of Emu Plains and it is my pleasure to acknowledge his work within our local community with this award,” said Stuart Ayres.

Jim has been a member of the Lions Club of Emu Plains for 5 years and runs the Youth of the Year Program as well as maintaining the website, processing the Lions Club Christmas cake orders and producing the club's award winning newsletter.

“Jim is an inspirational member of our community and well deserving of this recognition,” said Stuart Ayres.

Chris Hall has contributed to several campaigns as part of his involvement with the Cancer Advocacy Network including the Saving Life 2015 campaign which led the NSW Government to commit $76 million to remove chemotherapy co-payments, and the I Care for Palliative Care which saw $100 million funding boost for Palliative Care.

“Chris is a dedicated volunteer for the Cancer Council NSW and it is wonderful to recognise his commitment with this award.  A strong advocate in the fight for a cancer free future, Chris volunteers at the Nepean Cancer Care Centre twice a week and at Westmead Children’s Hospital in the Parent and Care Resource Centre,” said Stuart Ayres.

“The Community Service Award is a way for the NSW Government to acknowledge the inspiring members within our community for their achievements and selfless service,” added Stuart Ayres.
