City of Canterbury Bankstown Mayor Khal Asfour has announced the winners of the 2020 Local Women of the Year Awards.
Mayor Asfour said announcing the winners of this prestigious award should be a welcome change at a time when the news is dominated by the Coronavirus pandemic.
The winners of the 2020 Local Women of the Year Awards are:
“I want to congratulate and give the praise these wonderful women deserve for their contributions to our City,” Mayor Asfour said.
Over 60 women across Canterbury-Bankstown were nominated this year, proving selflessness through volunteering, teaching and entertaining.
Local Woman of the Year winner Margaret Williams said it is incredible to think people are appreciative of her work within the community.
In Margaret’s 40 years of residency in Canterbury-Bankstown, she has fought hard for the needs of the Aboriginal community, in particular the fostering of many Aboriginal children.
“I continue to enjoy spending time with other inspiring Indigenous women and offering my support where needed,” Ms Williams said.
“I thrive off providing Aboriginal people confidence in themselves, and assuring them that the community cares.
“One of the important parts of my work is mixing with other nationality groups to educate them on Aboriginal matters, making the award so much more rewarding,” she said.
Mayor Khal Asfour added that the women in our community continue to go above and beyond for others and are clearly making a difference.
“We are privileged to witness and be positively affected by these women’s actions, and I hope it motivates others to always act with kindness,” he said.
