Rotary club named 'Local Hero' in Bundy


The Royal Flying Doctor's 'Local Hero' awards have been announced, with a group taking out the title in Bundaberg.

The local Rotary Club has been recognised for its generous support of the service in 2020, including helping pay for and personally landscaping a brand new base.

RFDS (Queensland Section) CEO Meredith Staib congratulated the Rotary Club of Bundaberg on winning the 2020 RFDS Local Hero Award winner for Bundaberg.

“The calibre of nominations was incredibly high. Such was the difficulty in determining just nine regional winners, we acknowledged five other nominees with special awards honouring their contribution,” she said.

“Gordon Dean was recognised for his tireless efforts as a member of the RFDS Bundaberg Auxiliary with the Hugh McKay Award."
