Rewarded for his efforts

ROPES Crossing and Jordan Springs senior development manager Dominic Lynch has been crowned NSW corporate volunteer of the year.

The NSW Volunteer of the Year Awards coincided with International Volunteer Day on December 5.

Mr Lynch's volunteering efforts extend beyond the boardroom in supporting at-risk youth at Property Industry Foundation (PIF) for seven years.

One of the main programs supported by PIF, the "Property Blitz Street Sleep", was created to raise awareness, raise funds and get young professionals involved.

Mr Lynch helped developed the program from scratch and championed the PIF "Workabees" which support organisations such as the Salvation Army's Oasis Centre at Mount Druitt.

"It is incredibly humbling to receive this award for doing something that I am so passionate about," Mr Lynch said.

"I am grateful for the support that Lend Lease provides and enabling me to continue working with the Property Industry Foundation in their support of youth at risk."

Mr Lynch also volunteers at Narrabeen Tigers Junior Rugby Club and Warriewood Surf Lifesaving Club.

His volunteering spirit runs in the family with his eight-year-old twins raising more than $1000 for World Vision.

Launched in 2007, the awards are run by The Centre for Volunteering to recognise the efforts of two million NSW volunteers.
