Your Westfield Riccarton 2018 Local Heroes


Your Westfield Riccarton 2018 Local Heroes

Making a difference in your community

2018 was the first year of the Westfield Local Heroes program, and we received an overwhelming response and many heart-warming stories after asking the local community to nominate individuals who they believe promote social wellbeing and harmony in their communities.

We have continued to work with many of the Westfield Local Heroes since they were awarded their $10,000 grants in September last year. Read more about their ongoing work below.

Nominations for the 2019 Westfield Local Heroes program are open Tuesday 19 March – Monday 8 April.
