In late 2016, I was really honoured to be named as the recipient of the Jill Hudson Award for Environmental Protection in SA, which also included a personal cash prize of $1000.

Ever since, I have been waiting patiently for the right opportunity to come along to put the prize money towards – and today is that day!

With the launch of the NGT Foundation, I have just made the first contribution of $1000 into the new NGT Reserves Fund (established within the NGT Foundation that can accept small-medium sized contributions from individual donors).

I am especially pleased to think that this prize money will now be permanently preserved in the NGT Foundation, making a sustained financial contribution towards the future management of NGT’s Reserves.

This is a really satisfying result that has been worth the wait!
