Brad Maher has been awarded Life Governorship of Singleton PCYC for over two decades of selfless service.
At a recent award ceremony longtime Singleton PCYC Club Volunteer Brad Maher was handed the Life Governor plaque by The Hon. Bronnie Taylor MLC, Minister for Mental Health, Regional Youth and Women, and Upper Hunter State Member Mr Michael Johnsen in recognition of his dedication to the Club.
When he’s not busy fundraising or volunteering for the PCYC, Brad is a Shotfirer working for Glencore. PCYC Singleton Club Manager David Andrews said Brad is one of many locals who dedicate their spare time at the Club, helping out in any way they can.
“Brad has been actively involved as a Club Volunteer at Singleton PCYC for over 20 years,” David said.
“He’s a former long term Club President, and is still an active member of the Club Committee. He is heavily involved in fundraising for the Club and is the first to put up his hand when volunteering to participate in fundraising.
“Be it flipping sausages at Bunnings or selling raffle tickets, Brad is always happy to lend a hand.”
David said one area that Brad has contributed most to the Club over the years is as a volunteer boxing coach. Fully accredited, Brad was the boxing programs’ head coach for many years and oversaw the development of many young men and women in this sport.
He is still actively coaching today, albeit as part of a larger Boxing coaching team.
“Brad is a very worthy recipient of Life Governorship,” David said.
“He’s a very humble guy and does not want the recognition but I believe it’s very important to recognise his efforts and also all the other volunteers who tirelessly contribute to the Club.
“I cannot thank them all enough. Brad and others like him have helped make a positive difference to the lives of all the kids that come through our doors and it’s a privilege to work alongside them.”
