Heart Award recognises the work of Sandy Gilbert


SandyOur last edition of Outasite featured an article co-authored by Sandy Gilbert about the impact of the floods on land lease community residents in Tweed Heads and Chinderah. Sandy had set up a community Hub in the area with the help of volunteers, local Council and community organisations to provide support to residents impacted by the floods. The Hub is still operating 12 months later but thankfully we can report they are out of the shipping containers and in a building out of the elements. Sandy won a Heart Award for her volunteer work at the Chinderah Flood Hub. The Heart of Women Awards is an annual celebration that aims to acknowledge the women making a difference in their community. To be nominated you must provide service, support and leadership to women living in the Tweed Shire, Gold Coast, Brisbane or Byron shire.

Congratulations Sandy!
