Wanda’s Unsung Hero! Congratulations to Wanda’s Director of Lifesaving and Youth Development Officer for Surf Life Saving Sydney Mikaela Sutherland on winning the Freemasons of NSW/ACT Community Service Award 2019.
Mikaela volunteers for more than 300 hours a year. She is a regular blood donor and has organised fundraising initiatives for cerebral palsy and cancer research. She volunteers for the Mirabelle Foundation who assist children who have been orphaned or abandoned due to parental substance abuse and also volunteers at ‘Plates 4 Mates’, providing food for the homeless. Mikaela has been an active member of Toastmasters International for two years and sits on the executive committee of the “Professional Women Sydney” club.
It’s great to see young members of the community being acknowledged for putting the needs of others first, well done Mikaela!
