Sandy and Charlie are individual funders who give around half of their support to environmental organisations. They also fund in medical issues and the arts.
Charlie says “We became interested in environmental funding in the early 1990s when we became members of the Lizard Island Reef Research Foundation. Since then we have met many people who are involved with environmental funding and many of them are members of the AEGN. This stimulated our interest to join the AEGN.”
Sandy and Charlie’s current specific areas of interest are marine research at Lizard Island and at the Sydney Institute of Marine Science. They are also involved in various bushland and habitat preservation activities.
