Orana Client Awards

Orana Client Awards are open to clients of Orana in recognition of their achievements; personally, at Orana and in the community.

Nominations are called for twice a year from within the Orana community. The winners of the Client Award nominations are eligible for selection in the Orana Client of the Year Award, which will be announced in October this year.

Orana is proud to announce the winners from the first round of nominations for the 2017 Orana Client of the Year Awards:

Health and Wellness Award

Winner Maureen Cross (Port Augusta ES)

Maureen, a member of the Port Augusta sports team, participates in the annual Tri State Games (between South Australia, New South Wales and Victoria). Maureen is a crucial part of the team’s success both on and off the field. Not content just to train for events, Maureen takes it upon herself to contact the Port Augusta Council, Lions and Football clubs and even ladies craft groups to raise support and sponsorship for the team.

Educational/Vocational Award

Winner Bromlyn Innes (Port Pirie ES)
Runner Up Phillip Poyner (Mt Gambier ES)

As a long time employee at Orana’s Port Pirie Business Service, Bromlyn set herself some personal growth goals this year. As a key team member, Bromlyn wanted to improve both her communication and support skills. She is a very positive member of the team, keen to encourage others to work with the supervisors to try new jobs and work on their own personal development goals too.

Community Inclusion Award

Winner Meredith Gore (Karinya AS)

Meredith has delivered more than 13,000 meals to elderly people for Meals on Wheels since April 2008. Her caring attitude and willing hands not only deliver nourishment to people in need, but has also seen her develop many strong bonds with many members of the community she so graciously serves. Meredith is supported in her volunteer role by her Client Coaches and her aunt.

Well done to Maureen, Bromlyn, Meredith and Phillip. Keep up the fantastic work and progress! Thank you to staff for nominations and supporting our Orana Client Awards. Orana’s Annual Client Awards are proudly sponsored by RACV Salary Solutions.
