HEARTKIDS WEAR YOUR HEART ON YOUR SLEEVE AWARDS

The HeartKids Victoria/Tasmania Division held the inaugural HeartKids WEAR YOUR HEART ON YOUR SLEEVE AWARDS on Thursday 12 October in North Melbourne. The newly launched Awards were initiated by the HeartKids Limited Board, aimed at recognising and celebrating our staff and volunteers for their dedication and hard work and to celebrate the contribution of our major donors and supporters.

Each of the amazing individuals and organisations presented with an Award live and breathe our organisational values and model the attributes of HeartKids.

HeartKids has achieved some significant milestones since becoming a truly national organisation in 2016, including increased grant funding, significant growth in our online communities, the successful Roundtable in Canberra, the launch of our new website and expansion of services. The key message to come from our WEAR YOUR HEART ON YOUR SLEEVE AWARDS is that none of this would have been possible without the past, present and ongoing support of these incredibly worthy Award recipients.
