Local organisation rises to the Challenge
As if winning the Golden Glynn at the Lismore Business Awards wasnt enough, Lismore Challenge has also been awarded Regional Employer of the Year by Equalis Training Centre, and staff member, Linda Sheedy, was named Trainee of the Year.
Showing off their latest accolades are (l-r) Lismore Challenge chairperson Graham Mapstone, deputy CEO John Jensen and CEO Ian Walker.
Lismore Challenge provides training and employment opportunities for more than 200 locals with disabilities, with numbers growing every year.
The awards are a positive reinforcement that the work we are doing in the community is of value, said Lismore Challenges CEO, Ian Walker. It also recognises the professionalism and competency of our staff.
Mr Walker said the awards paid tribute to Lismore Challenge employees such as the late Brian Crozier, a long time client who recently passed away and was renowned for his friendly nature and winning smile.
