Staff member Nicole Hilton receive Lions International Award

CONGRATULATIONS to our staff member Nicole Hilton. Last night Nicole got a surprise when she received the Lions International District Governor’s Distinguished Service Award. This award is for ongoing excellent service to the community through a wide range of organisations and activities. We support and encourage Nicole in her community work and are pleased she has received this recognition.

Nicole works with many community organisations from Maleny Chamber of Commerce, Maleny Neighbourhood Centre, Hinterland Tourism Sunshine Coast, CHASM Housing, Maleny & Blackall Range Lions. She initiated Maleny Chicks in Biz which has now expanded to Glasshouse Country Chicks in Biz, Palmwoods Chicks in Biz and Hinterland Chicks in Biz. Nicole is also responsible for the Maleny Credit Union’s Financial Literacy Workbook for high schools, which she has just updated and will be used in more class rooms next year.

While some of these things are part of our her role here at the Credit Union to be out and supporting our local community, she goes above and beyond that and gives so much more. She says “I love being able to help people and use the skills I have to make their event, fundraiser, committee successful. It’s very addictive.  Some people get their highs in other ways for me I get mine from seeing others achieve and being part of that achievement.  My favourite saying is one person can have a good idea but it take many to make that good idea great.”
