The 2021 Australia Day Awards will be held at Lismore City Hall. We will welcome Doug Hawkins as this year's Australia Day Ambassador for Lismore. For 20 years, Doug has been a proud surf-lifesaving volunteer whose visionary approach has helped Coogee SLS Club implement inclusive training programs and increasing member engagement. Doug has also be instrumental in taking surf life-saving overseas to Israel, India and the Cook Islands. His work has allowed the 800 indviduals he has trained to become surf lifesavers many who are refugees and immigrants, so they can safely participate in Australia's beach culture. The Award Ceremony will be followed by morning tea.
