The staff, residents and Board of Anglican Care will farewell Chairman of the Board, Mr Malcolm McDonald on Tuesday, 4 August.
Mr McDonald took the reigns from long-term Chair John Kilpatrick in March 2018 and retires having provided Anglican Care with 17 years of dedicated and selfless board duties.
“Malcolm had massive shoes to fill when John Kilpatrick left the organisation after 47 years – and he has done an incredible job of leading the board and organisation,” said CEO Colin Osborne. “To have given 17 years of his life to Anglican Care is true sign of the dedication and loyalty Malcolm has to the care of older Australians. He has earnt the right to take a break and enjoy his retirement!”
The Right Reverend Dr Peter Stuart, Anglican Bishop of Newcastle and President of Anglican Care has valued Malcolm’s time as Chair.
“Malcolm is a person of profound integrity and deep personal faith. He has given himself fully to the work of Anglican Care which has benefited greatly from his contribution. I have valued his insight and will miss his wisdom. It is always easy to say of Malcolm, “He is a good man!” said Bishop Peter.
The search for Mr McDonald’s replacement will commence following his final Board Meeting on Tuesday, 4th August at Anglican Care’s Headquarters in Booragul.
From all of us here at Anglican Care, we thank Malcolm for all his dedication and we wish him well in his retirement.
