Neil Macdonald trained to be a Read Write Now tutor in July 2001 and since then has helped a vast number of adults in the Armadale area to improve their reading and writing skills. Neil, who has also been a Coordinator in the program, is pictured with current Coordinators Loraine Wood and Veronica Read. Neil's commitment to changing lives through literacy has won him the Burt Award for Community Service. Local member for Burt, Matt Keogh said that the awards are a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the "selfless individuals who give up their time to make our community a better place, to change the story for our neighbours and friends. This year the awards were especially unique as I had the opportunity to thank those who have gone above and beyond to support our community throughout the COVID-19 pandemic."
Congratulations and thank you Neil.
