Giving Back

Coral and I believe that after many years of taking opportunities, it is our turn to give back to the community.  We have been advocates for several community organizations such as:

We are both keen to do more: to engage our skills in the things that we love doing to achieve the biggest benefit for others.

I am honoured to be the Patron of DWA.

Coral and I have been skiing together since our first days at Trysil in Norway (QF32 p73), so it has been our pleasure to commit to joining and supporting the great and passionate people at Disabled WinterSport Australia (DWA).

Her Excellency The Governor General with the Life Membership to the Disabled WinterSport Australia.

The Governor General of Australia announced my Patronange at a Reception at Government House in Canberra in July 2013.

My mission as Patron (with Coral’s help)  is to help every member find their strength, fortify their resilience, and through that realise their full potential.

Give Back – NOW!

NOW is the best time to plant a tree!

We need your help.  DWA is a worthy cause that changes lives and gives hope to those that had previously only known despair.

For those who have been on the receiving side of others’ gratuities, NOW is the best time to come join us at DWA.  NOW is the time to “give back”.
