Now 22 years old, Jordyn Archer, 2014 Queensland Young Australian of the Year, is bringing her fundraising concerts, The Rescue Movement to NSW. Over the past six years, Jordyn’s fundraising concerts have raised over $30,000 for Destiny Rescue, an Australian charity which frees young girls from sex-trafficking and provides them with a home, skills training and a fresh start to life.
The National Australia Day Council was saddened to hear of the passing of Senior Australian of the Year 2012, Laurie Baymarrwangga, aged 98.
