Christine and Andrew win the 2014 Madge Tate award.

The prestigious Madge Tate award is presented each year to an auxiliary member who has shown great leadership and diligence in fundraising for the Royal Children's Hospital. In 2014, and for the first time in the history of this award, a couple were the winners. CIKA members Andrew and Christine Duyvestyn from Byaduk have shown a long and sustained commitment to supporting research into solid cancerous tumours in children. The CIKA team, along with a large contingent of family and friends, were there to celebrate the award with them. Andrew and Christine have also received recognition from Premier Napthine who is well aware of the work that they have done in his electorate. We are very proud to have them on the CIKA team.

Another honour for Christine and Andrew.

As well as being real power houses when it comes to CIKA, Christine and Andrew Duyvestyn have, for many years, been involved with many different volunteer works throughout their local area. In recognition of this of this community involvement they have both been named the 2015 Moyne Shire Australia Day Citizens of the year. This award recognizes the outstanding service and contribution to their local community over a number of years by an individual or individuals. It comes hard on the heels of their receipt of the Madge Tate award from the Royal Children's Hospital. (Photograph above.) The CIKA team congratulates them on their achievement.
