CELEBRATION OF SUCCESS
The North Coast Branch Awards of Excellence for the 2022-23 season was hosted by Woolgoolga SLSC on Saturday 22 July 2023. With one of the best turn-outs of recent years, a number of special guests were in attendance to present awards to the best-of-the-best from the Branch, including some new categories to recognise those who went above-and-beyond throughout the season. Notably, the family of the late John Wake were in attendance to present the newly established John Wake Memorial Trophy recognising the Official of the Year. The opening address was delivered by SLSNSW Deputy President, John Restuccia who congratulated and thanked members of the Branch for their commitment and dedication to the movement. Also in attendance was Cr Allison Whaites from Clarence Valley City Council who presented a number of awards throughout the evening. Special thanks to Erica Farag and Jessica Forsythe representing Newcastle Permanent, whose valued support and sponsorship continues to see the Branch grow and thrive. Last but not least, we’re very grateful to Charity Honeysett from Nambucca SLSC for sharing her time and talent to capture all the award winners and festivities of the night.
