The hard work of PCYC Gunnedah staff has been honoured at a state award ceremony in Sydney on Thursday night.
The club took out the PCYC OOSH Service of the Year award out of 64 others in the state, but humble club director Michelle Gosper attributed the win to the Gunnedah community.
"Thanks to the community and family and parent support. They're utilising our service and we wouldn't have won it without their support and help," Ms Gosper said.
"Thank you to the wonderful staff who are dedicated and give their time, on a voluntary basis a lot as well."
The award is based off how many children a club has enrolled in its OOSH program, and on "enrolments that keep coming back".
Ms Gosper said the club was a finalist alongside Tamworth and Mudgee, and were very happy when it was announced they had won.
"We kind of had an inkling because we knew we were up there. We've got an awesome relationship with the chief executive officer Dominic Teakle so it was very nice to be recognised for all our hard work," she said.
"Because we do run such a successful service it allows us to help give back to the community and empower the young people of Gunnedah."
