Prestigious trophy to recognise hard-working community group

​Not-for-profit community organisations work tirelessly within the community, often without a lot of recognition. Here is your chance to change that.

The Wilcox Brown Perpetual Trophy is an award that recognises the achievements of not-for-profit organisations within the City of Bunbury.

The winning community group will be presented with the silver salver trophy and a cheque for $1500 at the City of Bunbury’s Australia Day celebrations.

The 2016 winner was Bunbury Respect Inc, who were presented with the award in recognition of their dedication and tireless effort in spreading the message of respect throughout the Bunbury community.

Nominations for the award are now open and the City is encouraging community members to nominate a group based on their activities, special initiatives, milestones and achievements over the past calendar year.

To be eligible, the group must:

• Be a not-for-profit community-based organisation. Nominations for individuals will not be accepted;

• Have been operating for more than three years;

• Operate with an annual budget of $100,000 or less.

Nomination forms are available at the City of Bunbury Customer Service Centre or can be downloaded here. Nominations close on Friday, 8 December 2017.
