Fellowship: Strategies which support and encourage role model behaviour for Australia's elite athletes domestically and overseas Availability: Annually Region: Offered Nationally
Mrs Patricia New and Mr Gerald Frank New have sponsored Churchill Fellowships since 1996. Sadly, Mr New passed away in 2000 after suffering for many years from Alzheimer’s Disease.
The New’s have supported Fellowships relating to Alzheimer’s Disease especially that of dementia care, carer support, a national carers’ register and training carers for dementia and Alzheimer sufferers. The New’s also have a great passion for classical music and voice and have been very generous in supporting Fellowships in this field.
This inaugural Fellowship with a focus on athlete’s behavior is being offered in 2014. Mrs New continues to be a wonderful supporter of the Churchill Trust and the Trust is honoured to offer this Fellowship.
