The Honorourable Sir Peter Cosgrove

His Excellency The Governor General of Australia
Australian Red Cross Patron

In 2014 we were honoured to announce our new Patron, His Excellency the Governor General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove.

His first official role as Patron was to launch our Centenary book, The Power of Humanity: 100 years of Red Cross in Australia. As part of Australia's social history, the Governor General emphasised the unique role Red Cross has played in serving the nation for a century, at a special event graciously hosted along with Her Excellency Lady Cosgrove at Government House, Canberra.
