Care workers big night
THE Community Sector Ball Awards are about acknowledging the hard work undertaken by those working in the sector.
It is the one night of the year where the caring workers in community services are recognised and rewarded for their dedication to making our communities better places to live.
It is not only a celebration of the great work they do, but a chance to build networks and enjoy the company of colleagues outside of the workplace.
The ball, now in its second year, will this year introduce a new category, The Northern Star People's Choice - Volunteer of the Year Award.
Some of the volunteers already nominated are Christie Fry from Byron Community Centre; Marie Kennedy, Northern Rivers Social Development Council; Cathy Mac, Nimbin; and Maria Breene, Tweed.
The ball will be held next Saturday at the Byron Bay Community Centre.
