Starlight is an amazing organisation. Every single day it brightens the lives of hundreds of seriously ill kids. The people at Starlight who make this happen are special - they have a passion for what they do. You only have to speak to the families of these kids to know what a huge difference we make. I have been Chair of Starlight's National Board of Directors for more than five years. I am enormously proud of the work this organisation does and incredibly grateful for the support of those whose donation of goods, services, funds or their time as volunteers, make Starlight's existence possible. To them, in particular, I say, thank you.Peter Butler AM RFD
