Superintendent Writes

Sunday, 13th June, 2004

Last Monday evening at the Hotel Four Seasons, 350 business and community leaders honoured Wesley Mission’s key supporters at our annual Spirit of Mission Dinner. Network Ten News presenter Jessica Rowe was named Wesley Mission’s Celebrity of the Year for her a support of Wesley Mission through her ambassadorship of our LifeForce Suicide Prevention program. Jessica also launched The Spirit of Mission 2004 Report — Building Hope, Restoring Lives, Honouring God. The 36-page book shows how 222,000 received the help of Wesley Mission last year. Wesley Mission has 400 integrated and holistic services that heal and restore body, mind and faith. Write to me and I will post you a free copy.

The event was sponsored by Triforce. The Superintendent’s Award is presented to a donor, supporter, volunteer or member of staff who has made an out-standing contribution to the life of Wesley Mission. The 2004 recipient was Wesley Mission Board Member and Honorary Secretary, Professor David Greatorex. Dr Greatorex devotes a great amount of time to not only our board and management committee but brings the very best practice and skills to Wesley Mission to make sure that we are effective and efficient.”

The Volunteer Award was won by Emily McLoughlin. Emily has given over 25 years of service as a volunteer to Wesley Mission’s School for Seniors, for two days a week. John Plummer won the Individual Donor Award for his long-term and generous donations to Wesley Mission. The Community Award was won by Sutherland District Trade Union Club Association for helping to establish our new Lifeline Sutherland. The Club’s Board and staff raised $80,000 to start the service. The Corporate Citizenship Award was taken out by Plutonic Zoo, Ethan Integrated Systems and Cisco Systems, each contributed generously to the development of the Mission’s IT capabilities. The Corporate Citizenship Award, was won by Boral Australia for its outstanding support of our Home for Hope Project during the past six years. The Media Award was taken out by the Nine Network for over 25 years of support broadcasting for Wesley Mission’s Turn ‘Round Australia, Christmas and Easter Special programs. Last Monday I presented this award at Channel Nine at the conclusion of recording my weekly TRA program. I have been doing this for the past 25 years.

We thank all of our members, staff, volunteers and donors for their contributions to Wesley Mission.
