Governor General Accepts 20th Man “Patron-in-Chief” Role


His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retd) has accepted the role as “Patron-in-Chief” of the 20th Man Fund.

After visiting the 20th Man Fund in April 2014 and meeting with our Board, Staff, and Youth Leadership kids, the Governor-General expressed his admiration of the Fund and the work we do.

The 20th Man Fund is very humbled to have the Governor-General accept the role, which is further evidence that the 20th Man Youth Fund’s work is crucial to the welfare of Melbourne’s disadvantaged youth.

We look forward to a wonderful relationship and wish His Excellency a memorable term as 26th Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia.
