Dear Governor and Mrs Hurley,
On behalf of Pathfinders and its clients, I wish to thank you for your peerless service and dedication to our State. Your term of service has been marked by compassion, fairness, excellence and tremendous engagement with the people and communities of NSW. But I want to thank you specifically for your genuine interest and kindness to the youth of NSW.
For the past four years, Pathfinders was fortunate enough to have your support for its annual Pumpkin Run. At the end of each run, after feeding the disadvantaged of NSW, you would invite us to your home and thank our young people with the warmth and friendliness we’ve come to expect from you both. The decency, humour and humility you’ve always shown our young people has been instrumental in their development and growth as individuals.
Please know that the respect and courtesy you have shown them has been carried on by their compassion and willingness to help others less fortunate.
As much as we appreciate your service to NSW, we are happy knowing you will continue to serve our nation with the greatest of distinction as Governor General of Australia.
Congratulations to you both and with our warmest wishes for the future.
Alan Brennan CEO
