AWARDS were presented to deserving volunteers and supporters during the St Patrick’s Community Support Centre’s thank you dinner held in East Fremantle last Thursday.

Anita Cotton, a 90-year-old woman who has volunteered with the organisation for more than 30 years, was one of those recognised on the night with a Service Recognition Award, while delivery driver Mark Robinson was named Volunteer of the Year.

The Freo Fins Swim Club won the Community Supporter Award, while 12-year-old Kynan Chesterton was named Junior Supporter of the Year for his work fund-raising to buy swags for Fremantle’s homeless.
