They could receive $1000 thanks to Mercedes-Benz Melbourne
In every postcode, there are unsung Community Heroes. They are the people who, irrespective of their age, ability, or the challenges life throws at them, overcome the odds to achieve their goals, dreams and aspirations, inspiring others along the way with their courage and determination.
A Community Hero is also the friend, neighbour, colleague, community volunteer, carer or coach whose active support and encouragement helps make it happen; the inspiring individual who selflessly works to make an outstanding contribution to their community and a positive difference in someone else’s life.

Congratulations Janet McCahon,
our April 3AW & Villa Maria Community Hero Award winner.
Janet McCahon of Mt. Martha has been the President of the Frankston Churches Community Breakfast for the past 14 years and was unanimously voted back for a 15th year. The “Breaky Club”, as it is known, is a volunteer organization providing breakfast to the lonely, homeless and disadvantaged people of Frankston. A hearty breakfast of bacon and eggs and home cooked mince, followed by tea and coffee – six mornings a week. Janet supports her clients in many other ways, be it through the court system, assistance with rental bonds, a dentist, financial counsellor or even finding a supportive funeral parlour. As a trained counsellor, Janet always has an ear ready for one of “her boys”, as she calls them, and always seems to find an answer to their problems. Finding funding has always been a problem. The Breaky Club’s milk bill alone is $3000 a year and the church has recently increased their rent by over 200%. Whilst this is a major concern, Janet doesn’t let it bother her too much. She’ll travel anywhere as a guest speaker and, armed with touching stories, somehow manages to find the dollars needed to allow the fantastic breakfast program to continue. Janet is a true local Frankston hero to the people she assists. Be it freezing cold or stifling hot, she will drop everything to help “her boys”.
