Her Excellency Mrs Linda Hurley becomes VIEW’s very first Patron 

VIEW Clubs of Australia (VIEW) is delighted to announce Her Excellency Mrs Linda Hurley as the organisation’s first ever Patron.

As a passionate advocate for children’s education, and with close ties to communities across Australia as the wife of the Governor-General, Mrs Hurley is the perfect fit to represent the organisation. She joins 15,000 members who give tirelessly in their local communities to support young Australians in need.

“I’m honoured to be VIEW’s very first Patron. I have long admired the work VIEW members do in their communities, including their fabulous fundraising events, inspiring monthly lunches, fun-filled social activities and importantly, their generous sponsorship of students in need through The Smith Family,” Mrs Hurley said.

“As a teacher, I’ve seen firsthand the transformational power education has on young people. It really does change lives, which is why what VIEW does to help young people is so important to me.”
