Snowy Monaro Regional Council, the Cooma Chamber of Commerce, and Cooma Challenge presented Just Right Therapy Services with the 2021 Fletcher Lee Memorial Shield on Thursday 22 July 2021 in Cooma.
Prior to the introduction of the Snowy Monaro Business Awards, local celebrations supported by Council for International Day of People with Disability featured the announcement of several awards.
A perpetual trophy for Employer of the Year was created and named the Fletcher Lee Shield in memory of a local man whose life showcased the impact of meaningful social and economic participation.
Just Right Therapy Services received the Excellence in Inclusive Employment award at the 2021 Snowy Monaro Business Awards.
“Employing Amy just makes sense. She is an important part of our team, and her job here helps her achieve her life goals,” said Justine Keogh, Director.
Amy has worked with Just Right since 2020, and says that her favourite part of her job is doing office work and cleaning. Amy enjoyed attending the 2021 Business Awards to collect the Award, and now the Fletcher Lee Shield on behalf of the Just Right team.
Previous recipients of the Fletcher Lee Shield include The Lott Café, Gordon Litchfield Wool, Snowy Vets, and Birdsnest. When the Business Awards were introduced in 2019, the presentation of the Shield was shifted from International Day of People with a Disability over to the relevant category at the Business Awards. It hasn’t been presented since 2018. It was missed in 2019 because of the move over to the Awards, then no event was held in 2020 because of COVID.
Council extends its congratulations to Just Right Therapy services for their well-deserved award.
