Ambassadors offer us the opportunity to magnify our reach through their networks, as well as providing positive endorsement of our brand. They give their time and talent on a voluntary basis, attending events and appearing in media on behalf of Red Cross as well as providing positive engagement opportunities for our people and giving expert advice in their fields of interest.

This year, Professor Melanie Oppenheimer wrote and promoted our centenary history story; Pat Farmer worked closely with marathon teams in our fundraising challenge events; Guy Sebastian, an avid photographer, donated a signed image to our Young Parents Program for a fundraising dinner; Jules Sebastian was the face of Red Cross Shops; and other ambassadors including Alvin Quah, Dr Andrew Rochford, Chris Bath, Bob Handby, Kate Ritchie, Maggie Beer and Adrian Richardson supported us in various ways, from presenting at events and promoting our campaigns to making our 100th birthday cake. We also welcomed Pamela Clarke, Australian Women’s Weekly Food Director, who supports us in various activities including our Big Cake Bake fundraising events.
