On the Friday night of NAIDOC Week celebrations, the community will come together to celebrate award nominees and recipients from 4:00pm - 6:30pm on the Friday 9 July. The evening will include canapes, performances and awards presentation featuring the main award category of Grace Roberts Memorial Community Development Award amongst other community awards.
Aunty Grace Roberts was a local Aboriginal woman who history records as being a positive role model for her people and a person of great substance. She had a positive and lasting impact on the Coffs Harbour community, and is recognised for her leadership and guidance. From her determination, and by example, she improved the quality of life for Aboriginal people in our city.
Council and the Yandaarra Aboriginal Advisory Committee launched the Yandaarra Aunty Grace Roberts Community Awards to acknowledge individuals who, like Aunty Grace Roberts have made a significant contribution to enhancing the quality of life of Aboriginal people in the Coffs Harbour area.
