Chief executive Lyndsey Fitzgerald, whose not-for-profit organisation Jacaranda Community Centre won the Community Spirit Award last year, said the award recognised the high standard her business offered.

‘People think small businesses awards are for little businesses, they don’t look at the not-for-profit being able to run even though it’s caring environment to run on a professional standard,’ Mrs Fitzgerald said.

‘It’s important for our government funding’
