Pride of Workmanship Award goes to a worthy recipient!
It was our privilege to award a Pride of Workmanship Award to Matthew Bosustow.
Matthew’s dedication and commitment to his work is an example to all. In last couple of years he did not have a day off work. When he responded to the award he summed things up with “I just love working”. Well done, Matthew!

Job Support Officer, Sandy Finch supported Matthew in the initial stages of his work and she provides continuing support. She visited Matthew at his work place and supported him by being there to help solve any problems. She still provides support for Matthew and a liaison between Matthew, the Management and MJP until such time that Matthew will be able to work without support. "Matthew was never a problem", she said, "It is a pleasure to work with him. He is always cheerful, friendly and polite to other staff and he is willing to do any task assigned to him". Then she smiled and said: "I am quite proud of him".
Well, Matthew, we are all proud of you!
