Sinilia Radivojevic started volunteering with Cancer Council NSW 30 years ago. She helped translate information on cancer issues into Spanish. In 1994, she organised an Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea locally for the Spanish speaking community, and has organised one every year since.

She joined the Fairfield Relay For Life organising committee in 2008. She is also a community speaker for us.

In 2014, Sinilia joined the MP Liaison program and is the MPL for Member for Fairfield, Guy Zangari. She organised a Saving Life 2015 campaign launch in Fairfield and had three MPs attend the event from the Liverpool, Fairfield and Smithfield electorates. The public support given by the Member for Fairfield on the day resulted in Kathy Chapman, Anita Tang and Aruni Ratnayake meeting the Shadow Minister for Health, Walt Secord, at New South Wales parliament.

The Spanish community nominated her for the Volunteer of the Year in Fairfield City. She is the medallion winner, and we congratulate her on her fantastic achievement.
