CRAIG RECEIVES SERVICE ABOVE SELF AWARD

 

CRAIG HONOURED FOR SERVICE ABOVE SELF

Past President, Craig Alford was taken by surprise at last weekend’s District 9456 Conference in Bunbury when he was presented with the Rotary International Service Above Self award by RI President’s Representative Garry Browne and District Governor, Melodie Kevan. There are only 100 such awards presented globally each year.
 
Craig was recognised for the huge contribution he has made to the Rotary Foundation and several charities through his fundraising efforts riding his Hustler Super Z lawnmower around Australia.  Craig quickly acknowledged that he couldn’t have done it without the huge backing of his dedicated support team. Over $300, 000 has so far been raised through the Ride.
 
Craig, supported by several of his team members, rode the ride-on mower up onto the stage at Bunbury Recreation Centre, the Conference venue. He had just ridden the mower from Armadale to Bunbury in support of bushfire victims in the Waroona/Yarloop/Harvey area.  He had planned the grand entry as a surprise for conference attendees but received a bigger surprise himself when presented with the Service Above Self Award.
