Presenting your 2020 Westfield Local Heroes

We are excited to announce your three 2020 successful Westfield Local Heroes for Carindale.

These inspiring local leaders were nominated and voted for by the community and will now be awarded a $10,000 grant for each of their affiliated organisations to help their important work to grow.

Westfield Local Heroes is a community recognition and grants program, connecting and enriching local communities. Launched in 2018, the program spans our 42 trade areas across Australia and New Zealand. In 2020, we are awarding $1.26 million to 126 local organisations.

Your three Westfield Carindale Local Heroes are:

Aidan Lamberth

Scarlett May Foundation
Generous. Driven. Visionary

Aidan Lamberth delivers 1000 meals a month to families who are unable to leave the bedside of their critically ill children. Sadly, he knows the difficulty these parents face because he and wife, Renee, spent four months with their desperately ill baby daughter at the Queensland Children’s Hospital. When their daughter passed away, the couple set up the Scarlett May Foundation to provide healthy meals in her honour. “We were blessed to have family and friends who supported us. We saw firsthand that so many others didn’t receive the same support, so we wanted to fill the gap,” Aidan says.

Angela Christodoulou

Queensland Koala Society Inc
__Dedicated. Caring. Compassionate __

Angela Christodoulou has been known to camp under a tree for three days to rescue a koala and her joey. A co-founder of the Queensland Koala Society, she gives it her all to help protect the south-east Brisbane koala population. Angela has rescued more than 505 koalas over the years and has recruited local volunteers to help her. Community education is a crucial part of her work. "We encourage people to keep their dogs in at night and to drive carefully. "Collectively as a community we need to get involved with trying to save this precious species," Angela says.

Elena Gosse

Women's Legal Service Queensland
Inspirational. Tenacious. Charismatic

She is speaker and fundraiser for Women's Legal Service Queensland (WLSQ), which provides legal and welfare assistance to women and children escaping domestic and family violence. She shares her story and message that no one is immune to domestic violence. "I try to encourage those who may be perpetrators of violence, both men and women, to connect with their feelings and open up to loved ones or a counsellor before it is too late."
