Thanks to the Commonwealth Bank for their helpful, courteous and compassionate support for the rffada over the last 12 months as part of the Local Heroes Campaign and the Australian of the Year Awards. We encourage people all over Australia to nominate someone in their local or wider community for one of the awards in the Australian of the Year Awards Program. We were blessed to have Anne achieve Queensland finalist stage thanks to the wonderful people from Pregnancy Help who nominated Anne for this award. If there is one thing we have found doing this work is that there are more Australians than most of us know who are dedicating their time and sometimes even their lives to supporting others quietly, inconspicuously and successfully. We wish you all the best.

Merry Christmas and a Happy 2012

From the board
