Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith today presented Mr Jason Roberts of Cranebrook with a NSW Government Community Service award in recognition and appreciation of his contribution to the Penrith community.
Owner of Elite Sand & Soil, Jason was introduced to NADO back in 2017, becoming one of NADO’s major supporters. Jason actively encourages his team to attend NADO’s Friendship Days where he and his team volunteer their time to come out and cook a BBQ for 200 plus attendees and, his backing of the inclusive touch football teams has helped reduce the costs of NADOs participants.
“Jason’s commitment to NADO and the many other organisations he works alongside is outstanding and I am pleased to acknowledge his many contributions with this award,” said Stuart Ayres.
“It’s people like Jason, the quiet achievers across Penrith that make our local community the wonderful place it is.”
Jason is a supporter of events such as the Property Central Charity Day, Nepean Cancer Foundation Relay for Live, Hogs for Homeless, Kookaburra Kids, Living Cancer Charity, Mark Hughes Foundation, Transplant Australia and, he has also had long supporting partnerships with local sporting organisations including: St Marys Rugby League Club, Glenmore Park Leagues Club and Penrith Paceway.
Denise Heath, CEO of NADO said Jason is a remarkable man and we have been so fortunate to have him as an avid supporter of our organization. Jason is so generous and kind hearted, I couldn’t think of a person better suited to receive this award.
“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.
