It is a moving ceremony with many people from all parts of our community being nominated for the most extraordinary of human endeavours.  A young boy who had rescued a teenager after falling of a ledge and into a waterfall, people who have undergone heart and lung transplants and then setup a charity to assist others who require the same life giving surgery and of course there was the Donna Anderson, Widow of Inspector Bryson Anderson who was present to receive her husbands award for bravery in the line of fire.


With an incredible voice, Anthony Callea was the guest singer to provide entertainment to everyone present.  He sang his song, “Go The Distance” which was both appropriate and uplifting to everyone present.

Celebrity Presenters

The awards for the different categories were presented by several celebrities of which the boys had the opportunity to talk with after the event.

Dr Lisa Chimes, from TV’s Bondi Vet, spent time with the boys learning of their quest and has leant her support to the boys through their celebrity support page.

Also present was leading Australian Model, Megan Gale, who took time out to also understand the boys quest and what they are achieving.  The boys presented to both Megan and Dr Lisa a copy of their book, “Tears In The Jungle“, and hope that it inspires them to spread the message of the orangutan’s eminent extinction.
