Lady Cosgrove becomes Patron of Paint the Town REaD

Paint the Town REaD is delighted to announce that Lady Cosgrove has become its Patron.

Lady Cosgrove, wife of His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retd), invited Rhonda Brain OAM, Chair of the PTTR Board, and Barbie Bates, its Executive Director, to afternoon tea at Government House in Canberra, to celebrate the new partnership.

‘We were thrilled to meet Lady Cosgrove, and to learn that she has such a strong commitment to giving Australia’s children the best start in life,’ said Rhonda Brain after the meeting.

‘We talked about the importance of reading, talking, singing with our babies from birth, and shared photos of the little ones in our lives. We’re looking forward to seeing more photos of Grandma and Grandpa Cosgrove reading with their grandson.’

With the spread of PTTR across five States, and Lady Cosgrove’s commitment to family and children, PTTR considers her an ideal national Patron.
