If you pop into the SECC Hub in Mascot on a Friday morning, there’s a good chance you’ll come across the friendly face of Kevin, our resident Justice of the Peace (JP).
Kevin (Tsz Yung Chu) has been working for SECC for over six years, and is ready and willing to sign statutory declarations and affidavits, as well as certify copies of original documents as needed.
To recognise his hard work for the community through SECC, we awarded Tsz Yung Chu the Maisie Foster Volunteer Award for 2023.
Kevin first had an interest in becoming a JP when he was working at Hurstville Library and saw people lining up for the JP’s services.
He decided to go about becoming qualified as a JP and soon joined the SECC volunteer team.
Ability Links helped Kevin, a former accountant, connect with SECC after a period of looking for suitable work.
“When you have a disability it’s hard to find a job, but now I have one that gives me value,” he says.
“I like being able to help people with their important documents.”
Congratulations, Kevin, on this well-deserved award.
What is the Maisie Foster Volunteer Award?
Maisie Irene Foster was an outstanding volunteer at South Eastern Community Connect over the years and was greatly respected and loved by her community.
Through a bequest from her estate, an award was created in her honour.
Every year, the Maisie Foster Volunteer Award is given in appreciation of her commitment to the centre and her tireless work serving others.
The award is also designed to recognise the contribution volunteers regularly make to South Eastern Community Connect and the surrounding community.
To be eligible for nomination for the Maisie Foster Volunteer Award, a person must be a volunteer with South Eastern Community Connect (SECC).Volunteer at SECC
