STUART AYRES MP, Member for Penrith presented Mr Andrew Paech with a NSW Government Community Service award in recognition and appreciation of his contribution to the Penrith community.
Andrew leads and supports many groups and initiatives within the greater Penrith area including Westcare, the Penrith Men’s Walk and Talk, Steps of Hope and the Domestic Violence Interagency. He plays a pivotal role in linking with local support services and a wide range of supply organisations and brings together essential items to the most vulnerable across our community in their time of need.
“Andrew has a heart of gold, his generosity and compassion know no bounds and he goes about his work humbly,” said Stuart Ayres.
“With his contagious can do attitude, Andrew knuckles down and gets on with the job to connect and support our community.
“With just two of these awards available for the Penrith electorate each year, it was my absolute honour to make this presentation to Andrew.”
Mr Billy Beggs of the Penrith Men’s Walk and Talk said Andrew is passionate, driven and focussed in his many roles and no job is too small or large for him to undertake, which he does willingly and with grace.
“The Community Service Award is a way for the NSW Government to acknowledge inspirational locals for their achievements and selfless service across our community,” added Stuart Ayres.
