It was great to hear of the fantastic work that local Arash Bordbar is doing with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in his efforts to get young people more involved with the decision making process.
 
Arash is a 25-year-old from Iran who is a refugee in Australia. He had an incredibly hard journey to get here, including about five years in Malaysia. He is currently also studying engineering at Western Sydney University. He was also the 2019 Australia Day Ambassador as Fairfield City Council's Australia Day celebrations.

It is tax deductible and has the advantage of 50% of it returning to our District to use as support funds for the grants programs.

A recent activity took place supporting the Aspect Schools (formerly the Autism School) at Wetherill Park, with Carl, Tony, Roy and I BBQing for about 60 teachers, parents and children as part of their meet and greet night. 
 
We are planning on supporting their walkathon at the end of March, where we have been asked to BBQ again for about three hours. More details will be sent out shortly, but please flag this in your diaries and let us know if you can assist.
 
For those on Facebook, you will have seen already that we held another successful Birthday / Carols Thank -You function on 25th February at St Johns park Bowling Park.
As well as passing on our thanks to supporters we also presented cheques to several beneficiaries. We had several special guests on the night including the Fairfield City Mayor, Frank Carbone; the State Member for Prospect Dr Hugh McDermott; and our District Governor, Sue Hayward.
 
I’d like to pass on a special Thanks to Roy for all his efforts in organising the night and making it the success it was; and, to Helen who took on the role of MC, at very short notice. My thanks also go to all our members that attended.
