Scholarship Presentation Lunch 2016 – Scholarships and President’s Address

On a cold and wet day, the Podmore Foundation welcomed its supporters and scholarship recipients and proudly presented scholarships to its eight scholarship recipients for 2016. The guest speaker, Melinda Mitchell, a lawyer for the Royal Australian Air Force, gave a powerful speech on her experiences with education, and working with indigenous communities. Scholarship certificates were presented by Major General Roger Powell (Ret’d).


Brigadier Damian “Dolly” Roche Golf Day

The year commenced for the Podmore Foundation in a very poignant way with the inaugural Brigadier Damian “Dolly” Roche golf day on 7 January. Many of Damian’s friends and supporters turned out on a very warm day for a great round of golf at the Federal Golf Club.
