Nominations closing soon for RFDS Local Hero Awards
The Royal Flying Doctor Service (Queensland section) (RFDS) is inviting Queenslanders to recognise selfless community members who have gone above and beyond to help the Flying Doctor.
Nominations for the awards close Monday, April 12.
RFDS (Queensland Section) Chief Executive Officer Meredith Staib said your “local hero” could be a volunteer, fundraiser, first responder or even a healthcare advocate.
“These people are often the lifeblood of their communities and we want to learn more about them. If you know a community member who has in some way helped the RFDS, please nominate them before next Monday,” she said.
“Our 2021 Queensland Hero will receive a $7,500 grant, courtesy of Ergon Energy Retail, to promote a healthcare initiative in their community.”
RFDS Local Hero Award recipients can be nominated for each of the nine RFDS Queensland Base regions – Brisbane, Bundaberg, Cairns, Charleville, Longreach, Mount Isa, Rockhampton, Roma and Townsville.
The 2021 RFDS Local Hero Awards are supported by Ergon Energy Retail, Seven News Queensland and Queensland Country Life.
