One of the biggest privileges I have had in my time as CEO of your co-operative has been to work alongside Sandra Auckland in supporting the Variety Star of the Year Awards. We have been there from the start and the incredible event is now in its sixth year.
We have been proud to help find and recognise many very special young people over the last five years. We have heard stories of triumph, courage and responsibility that quite simply leave you in awe.
This year’s final gala celebration is to be held on Sunday and it will again be a spectacular celebration of children in our community. My very best wishes to those that have been shortlisted – I can’t wait to meet you!
