CLUB AWARDS LOCAL TOP HONOUR

Each year VIEW Clubs of Australia are invited to recognise and commend a  member who is living the VIEW values and guiding principles by nominating  them for a Making a Difference Award.

Rhonda Jurd, President of Myall River VIEW Club, said that Cheryl was chosen  for the MAD award for a number of reasons.

"In 2018, when the Myall River VIEW Club nearly closed, Cheryl stood up and  took on President, Secretary and Publicity Officer with great enthusiasm and  professionalism.

In the following 18 months, under Cheryl's leadership, Myall River VIEW Club has  expanded its membership and introduced like-minded women who care and are willing to fundraise for worthy causes such as The Smith Family's Learning  for Life program, and she also donates her time as a representative of VIEW  to the Breakfast Club at Tea Gardens Public School," she continued.

Cheryl Milburn said that winning the award was a pleasant surprise. It's  nice to know that my peers thought of me and wanted to recognise the work I  have put in for the Club.

I did it for my Club and the disadvantaged children of Australia that VIEW and The Smith Family help to support by enabling them to have an education  to help shape their future prospects, she said.
