Sayres Australia a proud sponsor of 2022 Aussie Hero Quilts Dinner

Jan-Maree Ball OAM, Founder of Aussie Hero Quilts, with Craig Powell, Sayres Australia CEO

On Saturday 29 October 2022, representatives from Sayres Australia attended the Aussie Hero Quilts Annual Dinner.

The dinner was part of the Aussie Hero Quilts Thank-You Weekend, dedicated to those quilters who volunteer their time, material, and talent to make quilts and laundry bags for our men and women in the Australian Defence force who are serving overseas, and to those who are suffering an illness or injury. 

2021 marked the 10th Anniversary of Aussie Hero Quilts.  Unfortunately, the dinner could not be held last year due to COVID-19, so the 10th anniversary of the organisation was celebrated this year. 

Sayres Australia was proud to sponsor an auction prize, a voucher for $1,200.00 to spend at Rodger Bartholomew, Canberra’s premium men’s outfitters. 

Sayres Australia was pleased to be able to provide some support to Aussie Hero Quilts at this event.  Aussie Hero Quilts provides Australia’s overseas serving personnel with tangible symbols of the nation’s acknowledgement of the sacrifices they make to protect Australia and its national interests while being deployed overseas.
