Eliza Ponds Land Estate supports local heroes!
Published 21st Dec, 2017
Eliza Ponds is more than just a land estate, we’re committed to building a connected neighbourhood and creating a sense of belonging to those living within the city of Cockburn. We pride ourselves on the community support we’ve offered over the past few years, including sponsoring football clubs and celebrating national Neighbour Day with an Easter egg hunt. Now, we’re on the hunt for heroes; people in the Cockburn community who go above and beyond the call of duty as a volunteer.
Eliza Ponds Land Estate is proud to announce, nominations are now open for the Home-Grown Hero Awards. The awards aim to recognise outstanding contributions by individuals in the Cockburn area in a voluntary capacity and highlight the positive effect it has on the community.
We’re calling home-grown heroes of all ages and walks of life, who are committed to making our community a little better. People like Peter Hodgson. The unassuming grandfather from Cockburn, has devoted many years to the Cockburn Community Mens Shed, going above and beyond the call of duty as a volunteer.
“Everyone needs a reason to get out of bed in the morning. I don’t do this to fill holes in my life, I do it because it enhances my life”, Peter told us.
We saw a unique opportunity to get involved in a special way and celebrate our community’s unsung heroes by sponsoring the awards. There are plenty of people out there just like Peter; and we are encouraging friends, family members and fellow volunteers to nominate someone who’s a hero in their eyes.
The judging panel will select two winners, who will take home the title of “Home-Grown Hero” and “Youth Home-Grown Hero”. With $5,000 in prize money up for grabs; on behalf of Eliza Ponds Land Estate, let’s shine a spotlight on the wonderful people making our community a better place.
Voting is now open until 31st October 2019.
