Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith today presented Mr Terry Rae of Kingswood with a NSW Government Community Service award in recognition and appreciation of his contribution to the Penrith community.

"Terry is a dedicated volunteer with Penrith PCYC and I am pleased to acknowledge his work with this award," said Stuart Ayres.

"With an impressive 43 plus years of service to the PCYC community, Terry is very deserving of this recognition."

"Terry who is so giving of his time to young people locally has also toured as a musician with global artists such as Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland and Diana Krall."

Over the years Terry's roles just to name a few have included: being the Penrith PCYC Music teacher since 1978, various committee roles, worked on club renovations, assisted with fundraising days, driver of the PCYC bus to take local RSL pensioners on outings, assisting with cooking and catering for Housie and other activities.

James Frecklington, PCYC Penrith Club manager said Terry has a heart of gold and has empowered so many youth here at PCYC Penrith and the community through his stories and music. Terry is an amazing man, and we are fortunate to have him volunteering at our facility since 1978. I couldn't think of a better person to suit this award.  

"The Community Service Award is a way for the NSW Government to acknowledge inspirational locals for their achievements and selfless service across our community," added Stuart Ayres.
