We’re almost six months through the year and the Newcastle Herald has profiled a variety of people who are doing their bit for local Hunter communities.
From a disabled surfing advocate, to the president of the Filipino Australian Society of the Hunter Valley, to the couple running Charlie’s Run 4 Kids – we’ve shown you just how much community spirit is out there.
Nominate someone for the Newcastle Herald’s Hunter Water Hunter Hero Awards.
Each week we profile something extraordinary in and for our community. – from sport to business, education to charity, music to health and the armed forces to emergency services.
