‘Dear Mr and Mrs Lamberth,
It is my great pleasure to inform you both that you have been nominated by Mr Joe Kelly MP for recognition at the 18th annual Griffith Australia Day Awards. I’m delighted to advise that you will be receiving a Griffith Australia Day Award in recognition of your commitment to our community.’
Being nominated for a Griffith Australia Day Award was an honour in itself for our Scarlett May Foundation founders Aidan and Renee, who have worked to deliver hundreds of meals to children’s hospitals across Brisbane since the launch of their charity organisation in October 2015.
“When we heard from the office of Terri Butler MP that we were receiving the award for commitment to the community, we were overwhelmed with gratitude and appreciation.”
However, like all not-for-profit organisations, awards and recognition are just the icing on the cake of what is very rewarding work, for which they are content simply knowing that they are positively contributing to the families with sick children across the city.
The pair are thrilled to watch as their foundation has grown from a simple idea into a much needed support service, achieving the ACNC Registered Charity Tick a few months ago.
“It’s fantastic that our mission of providing for families who are going through really tough times, is not only important to us, but to the community as well.”
Aidan, Renee and the Scarlett May Foundation Team send their thanks to Joe Kelly and Terri Butler and their teams for this award.
