Ambassadors of our Charity

Children Charities Melbourne

Another way you can show support for Cottage by the Sea is by becoming an Ambassador.

Our charity – Cottage by the Sea – is always seeking to increase community awareness of our work with disadvantaged and/or marginalised young people. Ambassadors can answer questions about the work of the Cottage and the constant need for funds, and they can suggest ways in which funds can be raised. And of course they run a number of fundraising events themselves, e.g. the annualFundraising Race Day. If you are interested in supporting Cottage by the Sea and enjoy speaking to small (or large) groups, or organising fundraising events, you may like to consider becoming an Ambassador.

We have been very lucky to have Curtis Stone as an ambassador, thanks to his mum’s involvement with the Cottage, and we are one his three chosen charities. Curtis was guest chef and presenter at a wonderful luncheon in March 2013, organised by our Bellarine Branch, in association with theGeelong Football Club. Check out what Curtis had to say on the day, plus some great photos.

Jimmy Bartel is also an ambassador and regularly visits the Cottage to inspire the kids and have some fun with them.  Here he is pictured with tennis legend Rod Laver, who has recently joined our amazing band of ambassadors. Rod, along with Frank Costa, recently hosted a dinner which helped raise funds for a new bus for the Cottage.

We cannot thank these guys enough for what they achieve in helping provide inspiration, fun and opportunity to so many young people!
