Tim Sims, Workplace Giving Australia Director Recognised in the 2019 Australia Day Honours

4 February 2019

The Australia Day Honours List was announced on the 25th January by the Governor-General, His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retd) and amongst those honoured was Workplace Giving Australia director, Tim Sims.

The Australia Day honours provides an opportunity to celebrate the extraordinary achievements of individuals who make outstanding contributions to communities across Australia and to say “thank you”.

“On behalf of all Australians I congratulate recipients of Australia Day Honours.  These people are worthy of our respect, admiration and thanks – they have made an enormous contribution to their local communities and to the entire nation.

“Today’s recipients come from right across the country and from all walks of life.  While some are well known, the majority are unsung heroes.

“Their contributions are diverse yet there is a unifying theme: they have dedicated themselves to service.  They have worked tirelessly for others, to improve local communities and to make Australia a better place.

“While typically they haven’t sought thanks or recognition, they deserve both.  Their generosity, selflessness, compassion, dedication, commitment to service and energy inspire and motivate all of us,” the Governor-General said.

Jenny Geddes, CEO of Workplace Giving Australia has worked alongside Mr Sims for the past six years at Workplace Giving Australia, formerly The Australia Charities Fund and said,

“For many years Tim has made a difference in the world through his passion and advocacy of workplace giving.  We celebrate this well-deserved recognition and applaud Tim for his continued service across so many fields..”
