Beats-staff-awardTess Thompson, Sue Evans, Deirdre Stewart, Liza Nagy & Meredith Dennis

Cancer support and palliative care not-for-profit organisation Tweed Palliative Support (TPS) has won 2015 Best Community or Social Service Award and the top 2015 Best Business in Tweed Award at the recent Business Excellence Awards Tweed Shire (BEATS) ceremony.

BEATS Coordinator, Natascha Wernick, explained why TPS won the top award:

“Liza Nagy, the TPS National Project Manager wrote an outstanding application. The Southern Cross University judging panel felt that it strongly presented the successful and inspiring events, partnerships and advocacies achieved throughout the previous year, as well as the enormous fundraising efforts undertaken, including the operation of their Murwillumbah Op shops to be able to open one of NSW’s first community hospices, Wedgetail Retreat, in February 2015. Tweed Palliative Support generates a tremendously good feeling in the community through their free cancer support and palliative care services. A very deserving category and overall winner,”
