Carevan Blacktown is incredibly proud to announce that our very own CEO, Andrew Scott has been named Blacktown’s Citizen of the Year at the Australia Day Awards 2020. He’s a humble soul and not big on accolades of any kind but this one needs a big shout out!!

As our CEO, heading up the wonderful team that is the Carevan Volunteer group, he’s a pretty decent bloke and a very nice man with a great big heart 💚 He works tirelessly behind the scenes to keep the van wheels turning, and while a very reluctant one, Andrew is a truly worthy recipient of this deserved recognition.

In a special addition to the day, Andrew met up with one of our Carevan community superstars, Rafael, the 6-year-old champion who raised money by collecting recyclables and donated a mountain of blankets to Carevan’s winter appeal. Rafael was a finalist for “young citizen of the year”👏 … perhaps a future Carevan CEO in the making ❣️

CONGRATULATIONS Gentlemen .. we are so proud of you both

AND ….  Carevan would like to ALSO send out huge CONGRATULATIONS to all the nominees and winners… everywhere !!

There are so many worthwhile projects and endeavours being undertaken in the local community and beyond, by some truly amazing and generous people, striving to make things better, doable and OK for all.
