Last year SYC launched the Lifetime Supporter Award to recognise individuals who have shown significant dedication to support SYC’s purpose to positively effect the lives of people in need.

In 2015 we recognised long time SYC supporters Angelique and Michael Boileau for their continued support over the years.

This year we turned our attention closer to home, deciding it was most appropriate to present the award to our three longest serving employees Di Cooper, Terry Annal and Margaret Spence who have collectively been with SYC for a combined total of 53 years.

We were thrilled to be able to surprise all three of them at the recent HYPA Boileau Gala Quiz Night where they thought they were being acknowledged for their involvement in a short video about SYC’s history, instead they were invited up on the centre stage with CEO Paul Edginton and SYC Board Chairman David Hallett and presented with their awards.

Soon you will see their names on the SYC reception wall as permanent recognition for their significant contribution. On behalf of SYC, our sincere thanks go to Di, Terry and Margaret for their continued service, please make sure you congratulate them when you see them and watch the video on YouTube to find out more about SYC’s history.
