Channel 9 Young Achiever Awards 2017
Websters Lawyers is proud of its South Australian roots and strong local focus, so it’s only natural that we support causes with similar values.
The Channel 9 Young Achiever Awards is such a cause. The Awards acknowledge, encourage and promote the achievements of young people in South Australia. It’s a fantastic platform to showcase the best local talent and achievements in a range of areas.
That’s why we are proud to sponsor the Websters Lawyers Service to the Community Award.
Websters Lawyers Service to the Community Award
People who contribute to community services and activities are the heartbeat of our society and without them many essential services would not exist. Not only do these people have the skills and commitment to get involved, but they are so often motivated by a desire to make a genuine difference to the lives of others. In young people in particular, we see community supporters who are passionate and energised by the essential work that they do.
Volunteering can take many forms, for example manual labour, fundraising activities, offering pro bono professional services, taking the time to visit someone or to chat to them on the phone, or anything in between. It is all valuable work. Fundamental to this is those individuals who identify a need within the community and who take positive action to address that need and motivate others to get involved.
The Award recognises young people who go the extra mile in their volunteering activities and who promote community spirit, who put the needs of others before their own, and who make important contributions to the communities in which they live.
The 2017 Young Achiever Awards were launched at a celebration on 6 October 2016 and some of our staff were delighted to attend. It was a great opportunity to celebrate the Awards’ positive message for young people in South Australia.
