Member for Fairfax, Clive Palmer MP, has awarded the Australian Government Certificate of Appreciation to committed Sunshine Coast volunteers, Margaret Brosnan, Doris Denning, Lorraine Amos and David Salter.

Margaret Brosnan’s commitment to Maroochydore State School, as both a staff member and volunteer, spans almost two decades. Friendly and engaging, Margaret loves playing an active role in the school community and gives up her time to ensure a fun learning experience for students.

Doris Denning has volunteered at Pacific Paradise State School for the past seven years, assisting with a range of fundraising events to generate revenue for key projects, such as air conditioning for classrooms. Doris also commits much of her time to assisting families in need who are connected to the school community.

Lorraine Amos has volunteered two days each week for the past year to assist students in the Primary Intensive English Unit at Nambour State High. Lorraine’s patience and expertise provides students with a top-class learning environment.

David Salter also volunteers at the Primary Intensive English Unit, but has done so for over ten years. A dedicated and reliable member of the community, David has played a pivotal role in helping hundreds of students develop their English skills.

“The Sunshine Coast is fortunate to have so many willing volunteers to assist with community projects,” Mr Palmer said.

“These awards provide recognition selfless individuals do not seek, but I hope they act as a measure of the appreciation felt by the community for their outstanding efforts.”
