Michael Hughes Foundation Deputy Chair Kevin McSweeney last night was awarded the 2020 City of Parramatta Citizen of the Year for decades of community service.

City of Parramatta Lord Mayor, Cr Bob Dwyer, presented the award to the NSW Ambulance Inspector and founding Director of the Michael Hughes Foundation.

“It is an honour to celebrate and recognise the many dedicated individuals and groups who generously devote their time to provide valuable support and services to others in our community,” Cr Dwyer said.

PAYCE has partnered with Michael Hughes Foundation to install more defibrillators at Melrose Park.

“We are always looking for ways to assist the community in living a better life – and this partnership does just that.”

PAYCE Director Dominic Sullivan said Mr McSweeney was a worthy recipient of the accolade and looked forward to continuing the partnership with the Michael Hughes Foundation.

“I would like to congratulate Kevin on his contribution to the Parramatta community and his work with the Michael Hughes Foundation,” Mr Sullivan said.
