Last Tuesday, the 16th October, 8 Awardees (7 Gold, 1 Silver) attended a Reception for Young Australians with The Duke and Duchess of Sussex and His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retd), representing The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award – Australia.
The Gold Awardees included Neelam Gopalani, Japneet Gulati, Brough Whibley, Zachary Drysdale, Alex Zappia, Emily Milton Smith, Eleanor Kirkpatrick, and Silver Awardee, Scott Green.
With the Award partnering with Invictus Games Sydney 2018 this year, the Awardees attendance at the reception with Prince Harry, reflected the Award’s support for the Games.
Amongst the Awardees was Zac Drysdale who was involved in raising funds for Invictus Games this year.
“I helped volunteer for James Griffin MP Member for Manly at the Manly Marlins v Navy Rugby Union Game. The game was in support of Invictus Games to help raise awareness for the event but also collecting donations. I personally helped set up the Invictus Games advertisements around the stadium as well as with collecting money at the front gate.”
Thank you to all the Awardees who represented the Award!
