We are saddened to learn of the death of our former Chairman, Patron and friend of Prince’s Trust Australia Mr. Tony Beddison AC.
As the Founding Chairman of The Prince’s Charities Australia (now The Prince’s Trust Australia), Tony worked tirelessly to establish the Trust and honour the vision of our President His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales to positively influence communities in Australia.
In addition to his involvement with Prince’s Trust Australia, Tony supported many charitable organisations including Chairman of the Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne, Director of the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute and a Director of the Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation.
In 2016, he was appointed a Companion (AC) in the General Division of the Order of Australia for eminent service to the community. Tony was indeed a true philanthropist who positively impacted the lives of many.
On behalf of the Trustees, Staff, Patrons and friends of Prince’s Trust Australia, we extend our heartfelt condolences to his wife Robyn, his children Sam, Georgie and Daisy and his extended family.
