Richard Sheahan

Mr MARK COURE (Oatley)

—Speaker, I rise to highlight an individual of outstanding merit within my local community – Richard Sheahan. Richard is currently the President of the Lions Club of Oatley and does fantastic work within our local community. It was my please to award Richard with an individual volunteer achievement award at my 2023 St George Community Awards, which I have hosted each year since 2010. Since first joining the Lions Club of Oatley in March of 2017, Richard has remained an active member, making substantial contributions to club projects, committees and fundraisers. It was also a privilege to host Richard recently at my senior's morning tea, which was a resounding success. Richard shared a presentation with the local senior's community, demonstrating what the Lions Club of Oatley is doing within the local area and how we can get involved. I truly believe that individuals like Richard are incredibly few and far between, so I would like to recognise him for his efforts. I wish him all the best for the future and look forward to continuing to work alongside him.
