On 28 June 2014 The Egan’s got word that Aussie Helpers had won another award for his dedication to the well being of the outback community, in particular, Aussie Farmers.
The award was presented at an outback ball at Gregory where there is just a pub and two or three houses which is about 100km south of Burketown in the Gulf of Carpentaria QLD.
Pictured in the group photos is the Mayor of Burketown Ernie Camp, Leonie a GP from Cloncurry, Nerida, Rob Katter Member for Mount Isa, Brian and Bob Katter Member for Kennedy.
Bush poet Garry Fogarty was the MC and entertained the crowd of over 200.
Aussie Helpers were nominated by people who live in the outback. Every two years an individual or organisation is chosen for the award for improving the lives of families in the outback, previous winners have been the Flying Doctor Service, Colleen McCulloch author of the Thornbirds, Ian McNamara of the ABC Australia all Over.

Winning this award shows the respect that Aussie Helpers have in the outback and those that dedicate their lives to improving it for others.
