We are delighted to congratulate two great friends of Pacific Friends – Jenny Bott and Wayne Harrison – who received awards in the Order of Australia in the 2012 Queen’s Birthday Honours List. Jenny and Wayne were recognised for their outstanding contributions to the arts.
|Ms Jennifer Bott AO
Jenny is the chief executive officer of the UNSW Foundation and a member of the Pacific Friends Advisory Council. Jenny greatly assisted in the smooth transition of Pacific Friends to its new home at the University of New South Wales and has been an invaluable source of advice and encouragement to Pacific Friends.
|Mr Wayne Harrison AM
Wayne is an internationally-renowned producer, director and writer and a former artistic director of the Sydney Theatre Company. We were delighted that Wayne was artistic director for the remarkable World AIDS Day 2011 celebrations which were attended by the Governor-General and Sir Elton John.
We thank both of them for their continuing support for the work of Pacific Friends, and wish them every success.
