Representing Dunedin at the National Community Awards

30 May 2017

Presbyterian Support Otago was the Dunedin representative at the Trustpower National Community Awards, held in Rotorua in March.

Chief Executive, Gillian Bremner, and Fundraising and Volunteer Coordinator, Michelle Gerwitz, spoke on behalf of Presbyterian Support Otago, with Deputy Mayor, Chris Staynes, on hand to support the team over the weekend.

Presbyterian Support Otago was the supreme regional winner at the Trustpower Dunedin Community Awards last year, earning us a place at the national finals.

Trustpower Community Relations Representative, Emily Beaton, says although Presbyterian Support Otago did not come away as the national award recipient, the work we do should be celebrated.

“Presbyterian Support Otago supports the community in a huge amount of ways, and every part of the organisation is supported by volunteers.”

“[PSO] have been helping people in need in the Dunedin community for over 110 years, and they definitely don’t show any signs of slowing down!”

Congratulations and thank you to over 550 volunteers who contribute to the critical work we do.
