Monthly Luncheon | Annual Awards

We invite you to join us as we hear from our 2016 winners and announce our 2017 Annual Award winners.

The Newcastle Business Club Annual Awards recognise a younger (under 35) person, an individual and a company/organisation each year who have made a significant contribution toward the improvement of industry, culture, education, sport or the overall wellbeing of the citizens of Newcastle.

Each award winner is presented with a framed photograph of The Summer House by E.Hilda Rix-Nicholas, as well as an overview of their recognised accomplishments. The original painting was purchased in 1976 by the Newcastle Business Club and presented to Newcastle Region Art Gallery for the benefit of the people of the region. It is a lasting gift to mark the inauguration of the Annual Award to an individual and organisation from the region who (or which) has made a major contribution to the commonweal of the city.

In 2016 our winners were:

  • Individual: Jon Chin
  • Organisation: The Mark Hughes Foundation
  • Youth: Chris Thornton

We are pleased to welcome them back for an update from the past 12 months. And then we will announce the 2017 winners!
