Logan volunteer represents Rosies at Duke and Duchess’s reception
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge hosted a reception for young Queenslanders of note on Saturday April 19.
Logan volunteer Sean Scanlon was selected to represent Rosies – Friends on the Street at the event, held at Southbank’s Convention Centre and co-hosted by the Premier and Governor of Queensland, in recognition of the work he does for Rosies.
Logan branch coordinator Margaret Harvey says Sean’s invitation is a fitting reward for his service to Rosies.
“At one stage he was taking out three teams as a team leader, as well as being deputy coordinator here in Logan.
“He also visits the Youth Detention Centre on top of that. I think he richly deserved to go.”
Sean thought the whole event was quite exciting.
“It was mostly a blur!” he said.
“What surprised me was that Princess Kate was already aware of the work Rosies do.
“I do remember telling her that I was one of 870 volunteers, and she was impressed.”
