Congratulations Des George - Geelong's 2014 Father of the Year

Congratulations to Des George who was announced as the 2014 Geelong Father of the Year award on Friday 5th September.

Des was nominated by his nine year old daughter Nicola Rivo-George.  Nicola told us about how her Dad cheers her on at basketball, how he gets her ice-cream, he helps her with her achieve all her goals, he tries to keep her healthy all the time, he lets her go and play with her friends so she doesn't get bored and he takes her overseas for holidays.  He also helps her to practise her basketball, her swimming and piano and he encourages her to practise and practise her sport.  He is very kind and considerate, he always loves her and cares about her and he has helped her through hard times now that her Mum has passed away from cancer.  He is the best Dad ever  and she loves him so much!
