Friends of 54 years launch campaign

July 2018 |

As best friends for half a century, Margot and Tina met when they were just 20 years old in Papua New Guinea – they had both moved there with their husbands for work. All these years later they are again together – living at Zion Aged Care in Nundah, constantly by each other’s side having a chinwag.

That’s why they were the perfect duo to help launch Mates4Mates’ “Australia’s Greatest Mate” competition in Milton in July.  Mates4Mates are a not-for-profit organisation supporting current and ex-serving Australian Defence Force personnel and their families.

They asked all Aussies to nominate and thank their greatest mate – whether it be a best mate, housemate, work mate, or family mate. There were four nomination categories (including one for best work mate), and judges chose four of ‘Australia’s Greatest Mates’ to share in a pool of life experiences and prizes.

The launch was at a BBQ at their HQ on Douglas Street, and attendees were able to meet Mates4Mates ambassador Craig Lowndes.
