Benmax team member Sam El-Matary receives Civic Honours Award
In wonderful news out of Wellington, Benmax team member Sam El-Matary has been honoured by the Hutt City Council receiving a Civic Honours Award for Cultural Affairs for outstanding voluntary service to others in the community.
Sam has been a valued member of the Benmax team since 2016, and this award is well deserved recognition for Sam, and his family, for the outstanding contribution he has made to the local community.
Sam has been a leader in the Muslim community in the Lower Hutt region for the last 20 years, while also representing them in Wellington and at a national level during that time. He has played a key role interacting with the interfaith council, as well as holding the position of chairperson for several charitable trusts, and contributing to a national organisation for aged concerns – all as a volunteer.
We congratulate Sam on this is wonderful achievement and well deserved honour.
