The Spirit of Sydney Volunteers Group recently hosted internationally renowned Australian Paralympian Liesl Tesch as guest speaker at the February Lunch meeting.
Liesl spoke of her triumphs and battles in life and of the experience of being a five time Paralympian in Wheelchair basketball. Liesl is the Captain of the Australian team and has won two silver and one bronze medal in Paralympic competition. Liesl’s wonderful sense of humor, engaging personality, and excellent presentation captivated the audience and moved other restaurant patrons as well.
The meeting was also attended by Centre for Volunteering CEO Lynne Dalton who will be the guest speaker at our next lunch in May.
