A massive thanks goes to our supporters
Without the generous help of our supporters, we couldn’t achieve everything we do. We love helping the disadvantaged within Sydney’s CBD so here’s a round of applause to our supporters.
City Community Care Incorporated is our core supporter. It manages the financial and administrative needs of the Early Bird Cafe through its Management Committee. It does this with the generous support of St Stephens Uniting Church, small businesses, community groups and a bunch of amazing volunteers.
Her Excellency the Honourable Margaret Beazley AO QC
We are fortunate to have Her Excellency the Honourable Margaret Beazley AO QC, 39th Governor of New South Wales, as our Patron.
Prior to her appointment as Governor, Her Excellency enjoyed a long and distinguished law career spanning 43 years, during which time she served as a role model for women in law at both the State and national level.
Appointed Queen’s Counsel in 1989, in 1993 she was made a judge of the Federal Court of Australia, the first woman to sit exclusively in that Court. In 1996, she achieved the distinction of being the first woman appointed to the New South Wales Court of Appeal and, subsequently, as the first woman to be appointed as its President. She served, on a number of occasions, as Administrator of the Government of the State of New South Wales.
She was made an Officer in the Order of Australia in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List on 12 June 2006 for services to the judiciary and the law.
Her Excellency has three children – Erin, Lauren and Anthony Sullivan – and is married to Mr. Dennis Wilson, a barrister, mediator, accredited international arbitrator and Adjunct Professor of Law, at Notre Dame University, Sydney.
Her Excellency brings her deep commitment to education, youth leadership, human rights and social justice to the role in service of the people of New South Wales.
