Soldier On Ball.... Auction Item Lot No 1.........

Wallabies fans.... check this out!!!


Former Wallaby flanker Gary Pearce, Chief Petty Office Cath Harvey, Aussie Hero Quilts and Lone Pine Medals have combined to present Soldier On with Lot 1 of their Fund-raising Auction for the ball coming up on the 26th of August. 


This signed 2015 Rugby World Cup Jersey has been a combined effort.

In May 2016 Gary Pearch had the jersey signed by the Governor General.  Then the jersey was passed to CPO Cath Harvey who had the jersey signed by the Governor of NSW when she attended Government House with me in her capacity as an Aussie Hero Quilter.

Finally, with the help of my Aussie Hero contacts I managed to arrange for Ben Roberts-Smith VC MG, Dan Keighran VC and Mark Donaldson VC to sign the jersey. A little assistance from Soldier On and then Keith Payne VC AM signed the jersey. 

Finally the lovely ladies of Lone Pine Medals framed the jersey and delivered it to me so that I could carry it to Canberra and deliver it to Soldier On. I have never been so happy to have something out of my car!


This item will go to Auction at the Soldier On National Fund Raising Ball on 26th August 2017.
 To register interest in placing a phone bid on the night please email events@soldieron.org.au

Till next time..... keep spreading the word and happy stitching!
