A unique approach to Community engagement.
Troy has been entrenched in his community for his entire life. He often refers to his upbringing as being raised by the village and not just within his family unit.
He has lived his life with a commitment of service before self and always giving back which aligns with his philosophy of those who much is given much is expected.
Troy has dedicated his life to community and charitable work and has raised over $250,000 for charity organisations and service groups. He has worked closely with Rotary & Lions Clubs, Children's charities, the McGrath Foundation, Royal Flying Doctor Service, Taronga Zoo Foundation, NSW Police Legacy and the Police Citizens Youth Club (PCYC).
He has held the position as Patron of NSW Landcare, Vice-Patron NSW Police Legacy, Ambassador for the Back-Up for life program. In 2018 he was awarded the Rotary International Paul Harris Fellowship and in 2019 became a Paul Harris Sapphire Fellow.
In 1993 Troy was part of a fundraising group that won an Australia Day community award for event of the year in the Gilgandra Shire and in 2004 he won Sportsman of the Year from the Tenterfield Shire drawing international attention for breaking a Guinness Book of World Records record in a charity event for ‘the most holes of golf played in 7 days (1800)’, in aid of a local charity which raised over $90,000 for an injured local teenager.
