Judith’s carnival far from over
SEEKERS star Judith Durham had been an international name for decades before she truly understood just what she could achieve with her fame.
When her late husband was diagnosed with motor neurone disease in 1992 she became the national patron of the foundation and realised the spotlight she could put on issues. After 20 years of community work, Ms Durham has been named the 2015 Victorian of the Year.
“It means the world to me. It means that I have a reason to exist, that I can do whatever good I can in the world,” she said.
Still involved with the Motor Neurone Disease Association of Australia, The Seekers star supports injured nurses, driveway safety, Small Miracles Foundation and Australian Children’s Choir.
