The program is designed to reward local not-for-profit community and sporting groups and expose the unsung heroes in the city.

Every two months, a group will be chosen by a panel of three judges and will receive a $1000 donation and 20 free coffee vouchers to distribute to their volunteers.

The group will also have the opportunity to have a display or fundraise at the Kwinana Marketplace.

Dance 4 Africa is co-ordinated by Jasmyn Hillier (18), who is studying full-time and has spent the past few years dedicating her time to the dance group.

Ms Hillier said it was an amazing feeling to have been recognised as a group.

‘We are just one big family and this will give us a great opportunity to keep doing what we love,’ she said.

The next judging will be held on May 26.
