Congratulations Virginia Edwards 01/02/2016


Former Lort Smith Board member, Virginia Edwards AM, was part of the Australia Day honours list in January.

Lort Smith CEO David Herman said the recognition was very well-deserved.

“Virginia’s dedication to Lort Smith’s work caring for animals has been nothing short of inspirational. Virginia has had a long and close relationship with Lort Smith. Her family connections date back to the organisation’s founder Louisa Lort Smith. Additionally, as a Board member for 35 years, Virginia made a huge difference in helping shape Lort Smith in to the organisation it is today,” David said.

“Lort Smith is a not-for-profit organisation and we could not do what we do without the dedication of volunteers like Virginia. We’re very proud of Virginia and thank her for her staunch support and tireless commitment to Lort Smith.”
