The awards, first established in 2006, honour those who help to make a substantial difference through their commitment to Vision Australia’s mission to ensure people who are blind or have low vision can live the life they choose.
Vision Australia Chair, Andrew Moffat, who presented David with the award said;
“David has added more value than most of us would probably realise because a lot of what's happened behind the scenes. He has been a constantly untapped resource when we need him and he's also been a great pleasure to work with.”
In accepting the award, David paid tribute to the proud achievements of Vision Australia, its volunteers, staff, clients and families.
“I've seen the passion, energy and commitment in everything we do at Vision Australia, from the board down to our incredible volunteers and staff and our clients.”
