Community Notes

Colleen Billows OAM

An official congratulations to former SMC colleague Colleen Billows who received her Order of Australia Medal for her service to the community through charitable organisations on April 27 after winning the award back in January.

Colleen received the medal at Government House, presented to her by Her Excellency the Honourable Frances Adamson AC.

Congratulations to Colleen on this well-deserved recognition!

Colleen has been supporting families with seriously ill children for more than two decades through her volunteer work with Ronald McDonald House (RMH), and recently abseiled down a 33-story building to raise money for the charity. Affectionately known as Nanna Col, she was also named one of the 2021 Westfield Local Heroes for West Lakes, as voted by the public, and a grant was awarded to RMH for her outstanding efforts.
