those names on the record now. I did speak about Cheryl Pollard, the chief executive officer, and her great team. I would also like to read into Hansard the names of that great team, and I apologise if this is slightly inaccurate.

The Belconnen coordinator is Julie Devlin. The inner north and part Tuggeranong coordinator is Stephanie van der Linden. And the scheduling officer is Lee French.

The AFFIRM program includes the senior family support practitioner, Catherine Bickmore; the family support practitioner, Hamish Glasscock; and the family support practitioner, Graham Bourne.

In the adults program, the senior coordinator is Estelle Anderson; the Belconnen-Gungahlin coordinator is Sally Wooldridge; the inner north-south Canberra coordinator is Chris Sakul-Thongbai; the south Canberra coordinator is Yvonne Lucas; the living skills coordinator is Susan Williams; and the scheduling officer is Robyn Cole.

In the mental health program, the senior coordinator is Liz Alexiev. In the LeisureLink program the senior coordinator is Michelle Preston. And the OHS manager and clinical adviser is Ann Murphy. I would also like to give a plug to the patron of the organisation, Air Vice-Marshal Gary Beck AO.

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of presenting a cheque to the Prostate Cancer Foundation on behalf of the Council of ACT Motor Clubs. The funds were raised at the Shannons Wheels 2010 charity car display held in March this year, which is one of the key events on the annual program of the council. The event has been running for almost 30 years and has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for charities. Next year’s event is taking place on 27 March. I encourage all Canberrans to get involved.

This year’s event was hosted by the EJ-EH Holden Club; the Lions Club of Canberra Belconnen also assisted on the day. I congratulate and thank members of those clubs for their participation and for making the event and the fundraising possible.

I would also like to congratulate the team at Shannons Insurance on their support of the charity display and the other great work they do in our community. They offer a great product to their customers, and the fact that they have such a huge share of their market demonstrates the quality of the service they offer.

I would like to acknowledge those at the cheque presentation: John Podovan from the Vietnam Veterans Federation, who also did a great job in assisting on the day; Neal Miller and Brian Inall from the Lions Club of Canberra Belconnen; Damien Hawkes from Shannons Insurance; John Darragh from the EJ-EH Holden Club ACT; and Chris Hansen from the Prostate Cancer Support Group ACT Region. I apologise if I have missed anyone.
