Governor General continues patronage

Friday, 16 Aug 2019

When His Excellency General the Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Retd) was sworn in as the Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia on 1 July 2019, the decision to continue his predecessor’s role of Life Ed Patron was an easy one.

Not based in tradition alone, His Excellency General the Honourable David Hurley reflected on our history and important role in the community.

For forty years Life Ed has actively and energetically worked to improve the health and well-being of Australian children. Its impact has been profound – it has helped countless children make safer and healthier decisions.

Healthy Harold was also acknowledged.

“Healthy Harold is an Aussie icon; known and remembered by Australians of all ages and in all locations. But he is the tip of the iceberg – the service and dedication of the staff and supporters of Life Ed should also be celebrated.”

We are grateful for the support of the Governor-General, as we are for all support given to the Life Ed cause.
