Two of our Paint the Town REaD teams, in Auburn and Penrith, took out two of the 2012 ZEST awards. These are service awards for the greater Western Sydney community sector.
The Auburn group, led by Himali Wettasinghe, won the Outstanding Project in a CALD Group/Organisation award.
The Penrith group, led by Julie Jasprizza-Laus, won the Exceptional Partnership Project award.
We were particularly pleased that that these were the only awards recognising community work benefitting young children.
