Our Victorian Coordinator was named Australian of the Day!
Our Victorian Coordinator Meagan Williams was named Australian of the Day on December 6th as part of a Commonwealth Bank and Australian of the Year campaign. The campaign, which highlights ordinary Australians doing interesting or unique things in their community, has been running for 8 months and has travelled from state to state meeting and photographing these people.
Anne Moffat, the photographer for the Victorian section, came with Meagan to a Welcome Dinner held in Laverton and got a great insight into The Welcome Dinner Project and the spirit that exists at the dinners. She is already signed up to attend another dinner in the new year!
Meagan says, “It was a great and unexpected honour to be involved in this campaign! It wouldn’t have happened without my involvement in the project and the support I receive from the Welcome Dinner Project team and in particular, the founder of Joiningthedots Penny Elsley”
