Pride of Australia Medal – Vote Now

For your local heroes;

Brad Smith, Bill Rathbone, Trent Moffatt, Willy Grey, Dean Handcock and Michael Maytom are finalists in the Pride of Australia People’s Choice Medal. This is what the award listing says about these men …

“Through extreme weather in Stroud in April this year, with 100km/h winds that were shifting houses off their foundations, these six brave men risked their own lives to rescue a male trapped on his car roof; an elderly female caught up in the flood waters; and to save five people trapped in flood waters at a local camping ground.”

Matt Finney from Dungog is also a finalist for the bravery he showed in the same flood event.

Voting is open now until Sunday 6 September. To vote now click on the following link – prideofaustralia.com.au

The Pride of Australia Medal celebrates the unsung heroes of the community, it’s a chance to celebrate, reward and recognise outstanding members of our community.
