Winner of the HCC Jane Nathan Community Award for 2018 announced

HCC is delighted to announce that the recipient of our Jane Nathan Award for 2018 is Toni Prime of Toni Prime Design.

Andrew Tait, President of HCC presented the award at the HCC President’s Cocktail Party held on Wednesday 6 March 2019.  Toni was also congratulated by HCC’s Patron the Hon. Josh Frydenberg MP, Treasurer of Australia and Deputy Leader of the Liberal Party in his electorate office in Camberwell.

Commenting on the win, Andrew said, “Toni was awarded the HCC Jane Nathan Community Award for 2018 for her pro bono work with community groups including HCC, Deepdene Primary School and local families.

“As a volunteer-based Committee, HCC has relied on Toni’s graphic design skills, which she has so generously provided to us at no cost over the past two years. Toni designed our 2017 and 2018 Christmas fund-raising baubles, she undertook extensive work on our 60th anniversary Brilliant Ball and she designed the logo for our ‘Love Your Local Charity’ campaign.

“In making our decision, the Comittee was delighted to receive written references from Deepdene Primary school and other families and groups Toni has assisted.  Toni has selflessly spent hours using her skills in the service of others, which is what this award is all about,” he said.

“HCC is also aware that Toni’s daughter Brae, a student at Deepdene Primary School designed scrunchies and is selling them to raise funds for our charity,” Andrew added.

The HCC Jane Nathan Award recognises and rewards the exceptional contribution to the Boroondara community made by an individual or organisation. It aims to identify, encourage and promote community spirit and provides an opportunity to congratulate people or organisations on their achievements in providing services to the community.

The winner of the Award will have shown great leadership in their pursuit to assist others, demonstrated significant achievements which have benefited the local community and shown dedication to helping others and display a strong community spirit.

The Award is named in honour of Jane Nathan, past President, Life Governor and current Committee Member (celebrating her 31st year on Committee) of Hawthorn Community Chest, and former Mayor of Hawthorn in recognition of her achievements and ongoing contribution to the local community.
